This is an ending

This is an ending
as thoughts must remain my own
collected elsewhere

Stock boiled with nettle

Stock boiled with nettle
rice cooked with spinach and leek
best risotto yet

Washing the dishes

Washing the dishes
gloved hands deep in hot water
trackpants start to slip

The moment light hits

The moment light hits
perfectly in photograph
composition skewed

Hearing her heartbeat

Hearing her heartbeat
quickening pace on embrace
touching her backside

I trimmed my branches

I trimmed my branches
allowing more light to fall
the birds look confused

I dream of travels

I dream of travels
forget the town where I live
my heart lives elsewhere

Glorious sunshine

Glorious sunshine
spring is time to exercise
fleeing from magpies

Cloaked as though shadowed

Cloaked as though shadowed
mocking me from a corner
a ghost out of reach

I dream of houses

I dream of houses
sprawling and familiar
yet no home of mine

Lovers end each day

Lovers end each day
as sun sinks behind her curves
clouds begin to blush

Outside my windows

Outside my windows
the blackbirds have been singing
before the sunrise
