I write what I feel…




If human beings are immortal

then age is immaterial

whether in earth years,

eons, or eras;

a baby could be older than its mother,

and a father younger than his son,

which could explain

why some babes are born so wise

and adults’ ignorance exposed.

Tell Tail


Tripping daintily across the lawn,
Chasing butterflies,
He stopped dead mid-stride,
Sinking down to the ground,
A stationary, static statue.

But try as he might
He had no control of his tail
Which twitched from left to right
While his st-ut-ter-ed mews
Were inaudible to my ears.

He crawled, chameleon-like,
Forward towards his prey,
A dear little dove of softest grey.
But the closer he came
The tail had a life of its own,
And the bird flew away ‘til another day.
