something in my eye,
bathe it and fight my instinct.
I stop rubbing it.

a work in progress
education continues
of the soul and heart
waiting patiently
the download will never end
my soul and hope weep

I need to focus
I float, swept by the current
the river of days

the madness of cats
distilled into night laughter
in the distant grass

thanks to Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell

floating in a pool
the dance of the spinning top
delusions of love

central heating on
the outside world is bracing
clear blue autumn day

my pussycat friend
i feared when you disappeared
oblivious cat

an inception dream
restart rewrite images
floating spinning top

Friday, October 22, 2010

feel the empty stars
their dust gathers in my eyes
earth in the silence

Thursday, October 21, 2010

the government cuts
public services destroyed
the Tories return

Wednesday, October 20, 2010

lost in the dark wood
no compass, the stars hidden
doubts scratch at my soul

indoors whilst it rains
our little island of warmth
casserole cooking
a cup of coffee
reading and warm whilst it rains
autumn has arrived

Computer coding
slowly, slowly learning more
staircase with no top

the overgrown path
the way is unclear and dark
the way home is east

the daily ritual
the basin of hot water
the blade strokes my face

Friday, October 15, 2010

my exams finished
i luxuriate in sloth
the warm bed of peace

Monday, October 11, 2010

round and round it goes
my delusions spin about
my merry-go mind

Sunday, October 10, 2010

give me song and wine
before the darkening sky
takes hold of my soul

Saturday, October 9, 2010

the soul wealth I crave
books, music, nature and friends
then my life is full
art is my garden
where I like to sit and think
books, music, soul wealth

Friday, October 8, 2010

the river, the road
the journey for Ithaca
the tau of my life

Thursday, October 7, 2010

from out of the dark
my demons swirl around me
"the fear" assails me

the drawing of you
With your head slightly tilted
made with love by him

cast upon the shore
the ship wreck survivor walks
birds glide overhead
we had a long talk
settling issues of weight
last night in my dream

breakers ... a lee shore
battling the turbulent sea
the engine sparks ... life

A tanka

For I am but dust
Atoms from inside a star
Yet I am aware
How is it that I can think?
Chaos chemistry and time

Sunday, October 3, 2010

my heart's measured pace
a hop, a step and a jump
when I think of you

Saturday, October 2, 2010

Uni revision
going through the books again
slowly sinking in

Friday, October 1, 2010

the day starts slowly
reading the news on the web
and strong black coffee
