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

 

daydreaming

the sweet scent of the hayloft

a pocket nest

where ruby-throated swallows

come and go

 

Atlas Poetica 10, autumn 2011

 

mehndi

from wrists to fingertips . . .

last of the swallows

 

DailyHaiku,  September 2011

 

and because you love tree sparrows…
