I write what I feel…


Pigeon Pair

Pigeon Pair

Is it true that birds mate for life
one mate, one life…
pigeons have always fascinated me
their antics captivated me
such variations in colour
but they often seem to choose
a mirror image of themselves
with a one-time exception that i saw
one black and one white (part fantail)
always together ~ no interest in another
black so attentive, captivated
intrigued, mesmerised, hypnotised
grooming her endlessly
they were seen each day for weeks
constant companions
and then they were gone
unseen for more than a year
I wonder where…

Black & White

Blinds (pun intended)

This was written just after Turning the Tide.

Black & White

Black and white
Shadows and light
The colours of night
Contrasting shades
Opposing views
Conflicting ideas
Divergent beliefs
But if you consider

They are us
And we are they
All mixed up
In many ways
Even piano keys
Need each other
Can we not learn
To live together

Mist on the Water

Mist on the Water

Mist on the water
Forest on the rise
Two canoes together
Desire in your eyes

White water river
Swollen by the rain
Thunders over rocks
Drowning out the pain

Remember when we cut
Mixed our blood together
Blood brothers we would be
And lovers forever
