Continuity –

Clearly you’re a dinosaur ~

Hunting small mammals.

Hazy mountain-view –

Framed by fruit trees in full leaf ~

Tiny pears still safe.

Birds bursting hedges –

Noisy house sparrows, fighting ~

Calm Siskin, feeding.

Crows of Pristina

Oversee new cathedral ~

Excited chatter.



Evening birdsong –
Not those of my native land ~
Familiar now. 

Virginja contrails –
Half moon cut with blue and white ~
Dinosaurs fly through. 

Chattering finches –
In amongst the fallen leaves ~


Our turret rotates –
Languidly, in evensong ~
Big gun, balls of steel.

Poles clang, sail and flag –
Small dinosaurs, signing off ~
Recalling Tang verse. 


Chewing sugar cane –
Contentedly, in the sun ~
But birds want my crisps.
