abrade the darkness
polish it with ocean sand
tumbling sea glass

review of the year
more knowledge and some haiku
no love and no job

Wednesday, December 29, 2010

I am pulled along
in your charisma slipstream
but beware the bees

Tuesday, December 28, 2010

patterns in the clouds
i see meaning everywhere
augur of madness

Monday, December 27, 2010

the urge to programme
to write some algorithms
create something new

Sunday, December 26, 2010

we talk, a chaise longue,
indian blue eyed beauty
reclining in silks

Saturday, December 25, 2010

homeless in the snow,
battered women in shelters,
sending Christmas love

Friday, December 24, 2010


document your soul
and I will learn it by heart
every word precious

Thursday, December 23, 2010

friends, conversation
the mutual nurturing
love ecosystem

Wednesday, December 22, 2010

between hope and death
the rock face of endurance
I cling to a rope

Tuesday, December 21, 2010

the cold and the night
the flapping of the main sail
raw - tied to the mast

Monday, December 20, 2010


suicide calls me
I hear the seductive song
escape and be free
is there right and wrong?
moral relativism
is inadequate
cultural differences
need respect ... but at Carthage

Sunday, December 19, 2010

tears dry on my face
film - how important friends are
my friends make me live

Saturday, December 18, 2010

fallen leaves of hope
nutrient husk of beauty
collects for compost

Friday, December 17, 2010

purple alphabet
which evolved to roman runes
recorded in bytes

Thursday, December 16, 2010

scale - deep sky objects
the Sculptor Supercluster
quasars, red shifted,
make the Milky Way seem small
my mind a mote, my life brief

Wednesday, December 15, 2010

playing with circuits
I am trying to work out
how to flash the chip

Tuesday, December 14, 2010

QUIET mind, drift to sleep,
slide down to chocolate depths
breath - temperate - long

Monday, December 13, 2010

have arrived for programming
let's not melt these ones

Sunday, December 12, 2010

a drink of water
or breeze on a humid night
the darkness has snapped

Saturday, December 11, 2010

mustard seed of hope
in the dark winter midnight
nestled in my bed
the dark tastes bitter
the silent damp hours empty
winter inside hope

Friday, December 10, 2010

forty-two years old
unemployed, single and mad
healthy, friends, learning

Thursday, December 9, 2010

I live in the dark
body clock drifting vampire
lost alone birthday

Wednesday, December 8, 2010

moving by inches
taking a day at a time
careful with my mind

Tuesday, December 7, 2010

mauled by santa's claws
the Christmas shopping season
the present of debt

Monday, December 6, 2010

fifteen, on a box,
rope around my neck, swaying,
it snapped, failed again

Sunday, December 5, 2010

afternoon curry,
sunday laughter, drinks and friends,
a lovely warm time

Saturday, December 4, 2010

walking on the beach
watching rock climbers and waves,
yachts in the distance

Friday, December 3, 2010

shadows in my skull
throw darkness upon my life
the woodshed drummer
grins at the demons within
a rictus smile, aces and eights

Thursday, December 2, 2010

pico lighthouses
flash warnings of ice, photons
slide away from Earth
scream into the dark
about the song of sunlight days
out of reach like hope
lost inside my head
alien industrial gardens
running drunk and mad

Wednesday, December 1, 2010

awkward in my skin
discombobulated by
normal things in life
the red and the blue
the obsession/delusion
the echoes in time
