Did You Hear The Full Moon Sing?


Yesterday, spring arrived

Last night, a full moon ignited the sky

Today, warmth arose from the earth


Everywhere I walked

Nature stood there bountiful and proud

Everywhere I looked

Nature displayed her colourful shrouds


I saw a glossy black pony

Glowing in the paddock moonlight

And a garden of purple flowers

Bouncing in the sunlight


I saw tree-house sanctuaries

Homes for mystical faeries

And hollowed out logs

Comfy beds for spiders and frogs


Tonight, nature’s mockingbird will sing a lullaby

Tomorrow, the universe will hear no lie or alibi

A Courtyard Song




A Courtyard Song




The spring morn is crisp

Sun-rays cling onto my chest

Porridge and lemon-ginger tea

Refresh my sleepy soul

Courtyard flowers arouse my eyes

Music vibrates the air

With a piano tune from Ludovico Einaudi

And Frankie quietly watches on


I write a comment for Derrick

His home in England needs a plumber

Then I send a song to Susi in America

To compliment her lovely ‘Fall’ poem

Carolyn’s words enrich my heart

But she will need her tissues

When she plays the video/music song

Only 8.00 am, and my message box is full

And now, the old poet’s day begins

Lights Above Bridges



Bridges span our invisible years 

And carry our dry fallen tears 

Crossing over old secret fears


Bridges are burnt over time

Time is our only constant  

Changes occur while we are conscious

Beyond the longest bridges

Under the ocean’s deepest blue 

And above nature’s darkest green 

Love’s evolving hues renew 

And Aurora lights again reconvene
