because you love swallows…


like breath,

like poetry

child of summer

you are my wings

to the blue beyond


For Amy, 30th April 2012


Happy 15th Birthday,

Happy Summer’s Eve, my little queen of the May




this day

unravelling at the sleeve…

on a blue breeze

swallows take my thoughts

to the shoulder of the sky


Presence #45 January, 2012


cutting my cloth

according to its width . . .

the wings of swallows


DailyHaiku, August 2011


finding no grace

in words

I envy the swallows

sweeping away

into twilight blue


Atlas Poetica 8, spring 2011



the sweet scent of the hayloft

a pocket nest

where ruby-throated swallows

come and go


Atlas Poetica 10, autumn 2011



from wrists to fingertips . . .

last of the swallows


DailyHaiku,  September 2011


and because you love tree sparrows…
