Fledgling house sparrow –

Waiting to be fed by Mom ~

Both fat on my grain.

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.

Buffeted by wind –

And by life in general ~

Head down and chin up.

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.

Dada tooth fairy –

Travels very light these days ~

A silent payment.

‘Planes land and take off –
With millions of stories ~
Bringing people home. 

Chattering finches –
In amongst the fallen leaves ~
Indistinguishable.
