The Turning

Nightshade glade blue-green

grey tourquoise skies

low fast smoke cloud wafts

a mango rim october dawn

sly yellows exposed.

Thursday.

The weekend looks quiet,

walk the dog,

eat the fridge,

frugal rations,

no rugby.

A turning point in the year.

Horse Roast

Shaky week bright chill bleak.

Stark relief conceals a brutal truth.

Situation abnormal

A world turned downside up.

~

Soon the birds must migrate

for warmer winter climes

so wrap up warm & watch your back.

The forces of darkness may soon attack.

Nuts gathered in May

Soon will have their day.

Timid earth coyly wobbles.

Gives up alms seas of troubles.

~

And by reposing, rends them null.

Mulligrubs with mean demeanours wrack the wind.

Gripes stab shrieks and guillemots.

Shags lie wrecked and heaped in frozen sea suds.
