Second hand bookstores –
Sometimes whole shelves on one theme ~
Dead men’s libraries.

Two people, grieving –

Listening, having good chats ~

Agree Bach is best.

Waded half way through –

A poem a day so far ~

Might just go o’er.

Another dead fox –

Really had hopes for this one ~

Such delicate paws.

A man of science-

Who still saw the hand of God ~

A poor student, helped.

(For Philip A. Allen, Professor of Geology, RIP)

Snails in old plastic –

My Grandma would have killed them ~

I don’t have the heart.

New plastic bottle snail home –

She’s smiling, shaking her head.

She’s gone many years –

A lifetime ago, in fact ~

Still missing her though.

Old cassette tape found –

Ghosts of great uncles, singing ~

I can’t stop smiling.

Dalkey Island Sound –

A good place to pause and think ~

His ashes, long gone.

A marble fireplace –

Anastomosing patterns ~

Long since understood.

(For Dave Johnston, a great teacher)
