Sun sets, before the day has ended
Time sighs and then resigns
Itself to march on and ignore
Pleading eyes and shivering skin
Frozen palms beg for respite
Buried in dull grey overcoats
Sunburnt leaves breathe their last
Writhing around on merciless stone
Even the clouds have finally lost it
Tired of smiling for photographs
Sky chokes, smothered it seems
Unless this is all just for laughs
Chapped lips lament to each other
As icy drafts hiss into my ears
“Our turn now, winter is coming”
What wonderful magicians they are
Smiling down quietly from afar
Jewels woven into the endless sky
They wink merry as night goes by
A friend in need for the solitary
They fill voids, emotional penury
For a lonely soul here and there
Wanting to lay a torn heart bare
The world sleeps on without a care
Your grief, twinkling things share
Wiping away tears you try to hide
Healing wounds from deep inside
Your fallen dreams, they silently gather
In your eyes they fill and you wander
Hopeless nights then turn beautiful
And hopes fill your basket bountiful
Under heaven’s canopy you sit calm
And heal slowly, waiting for dawn
They stay by you till the dark ends
And a new day comes to make amends
Patient angels, you truly thank them
Hoping next night again they will come.
- Huge yellow trees
Hand leftovers to winter
Bartered for greens.
- Red-nosed in winter
Or sunburned in summer?
I love spring.
- Many grey clouds
All pregnant with rain
Then it pours.
- Two months of sun
Others perfect for tea
My lovely city.
- Free from the noise
Of the concrete jungle
A young lion roars.
- Goosebumps in the cold
And then a sudden gust
Of wind, how cruel.
- A cool blue stream
It was meant to meet
My tired feet.
- Shining cobweb
Trapping the sunlight
And a poor fly.
