Lent Fiesta

We sat around the table
there were 6 of us.
Indulging in some moments
some already
due to wine
were now, somewhat nonplus.
We sat and laughed
and joked and shared
our memories of the past.
All the time our unawares
of life beyond our
culminating fast.
As time evolved and
talk moved to food
Lent’s end was now in sight.
Our rumbling tums now audible
and saliva fired for our first bite.
We lifted baskets crammed
with culinary delights.
Unhooked the lids
then shrieked in horror
the food in side
had come alive
with ants
attendant to devour!

I’d Rather Be… Lying on my back

I’d Rather Be…

…lying on my back
in the long grass
basking in the warmth
of a highland summer’s day
drinking in
the vast array of sensations
no words can define
listening to
the buzz of the bees and flies
the tunes of breeze
through the grasses
the call of the sheep
to their growing lambs
indulging in
the bouquet of scents
and watching the clouds
gently floating by…
… succinctly… in Heaven!

Wheel Legacy

“Wheels! What d’ya think?”
“Hmmm? Different.”
“It’s that alright!”
“He left this for me…
…with a note – he’d a great sense of humour.”

For Ellie
Wheel always remember
Times that we spent
In deep contemplation
Of so much dissent
Around we would go
Full circle sometimes
Always the same answer
Want peace?
Quiet the mind.
There’s always a circle
A beginning and an end
Forever they’re fused
So nothing to mend
There’s always some movement
Nothing stands still
Just embrace any contrast
No need for strong will.
Be the axle my friend and just observe the wheel.

“When’s his funeral?”

Autumn…

SONY DSC

I awoke again this morning
With the scent of Autumn in the air.
It invigorated my spirit
End of summer’s almost there.

I can feel a building of excitement
As the season’s change again
The urge to gather nuts and stores
Ready for the onslaught
Of winters wind and rain.

I usually feel a sadness
When Summer’s almost done
But I’ve had my fill of sunshine
So now  Autumn…  bring it on!
