​among
the dark spaces of her grief
a fleeting smile

LSA - September 2016

 

garden shed...
so soon a squatter
in grandpa's boot ​

LSA - September 2016

 

autumn harvest
I gather stray thoughts
to hoard

shoulder high
a toddler reaches
to stroke the giraffe

page seven
war and peace
I surrender to sleep

bus queue
two headless boys
with nimble thumbs

cloud cover...
all the sun worshippers
on hold

LSA - September 2016

 

losing Mum...
the sun tries to teach us
how to smile again

jam making...
I evict another
bumble bee

LSA - September 2016

 

leading the bull
he wipes sweat from his neck
with a red rag

LSA - September 2016

 

sibling rivalry
he reminds me I was born
in the year of the rat

diy...
the ice melting
into my splinter

LSA - September 2016

 

bus stop
an old lady and a pigeon
on nodding terms

LSA - September 2016

 

tea party
a toddler scolds her doll
for interrupting

LSA - September 2016

 

overripe peaches
out of nowhere
fruit flies

air display
my toddler points
to the little perishers

sick in bed
the cough and splutter
of my neighbour's car

LSA - September 2016

 

beachcomber…
an empty bottle
full of Sunshine

LSA - September 2016

 

boiling an egg...
a reminder of my
hourglass figure

LSA - September 2016

 

my left hip
missing the weight
of a child

LSA - September 2016

 

the wind
raising her skirt...
he wishes it was him
