hospital ward
the hum of machines
she no longer needs

Cattails  May 2014


long wait
knitting the tension
into a scarf

Cattails  January 2015 


paving stones

stepping round the cracks

in our relationship

Cattails  May 2015 


another grey day
only raindrops
ride the carousel

Cattails  May 2016 


the art of treading
on thin ice

Cattails  May 2016 


spring cleaning
I free the sun
from the spider’s web

Prune Juice  issue 19 July 2016 


family Christmas
even the dog
bites his tongue

Failed Haiku January 2016 


childhood friend
I bury my innocence
with her

Failed Haiku January 2016 


the remission
only temporary
false spring

Failed Haiku April 2016 


last of the light
leaving the hospice
in silence

Failed Haiku August 2016


the child
there never was
winter sun

Failed Haiku September 2016 


through the seams
of the pall bearer's suit
autumn chill

Failed Haiku September 2016
