The words we cannot say

 

Water laps at the shore
Wind is just a gentle puff
Sun slow Rises in the sky
I climb the rock
Crouching, looking, feeling
Barnacles cling under my feet
Waster crashes against the rock
Spraying me with a hundred kisses
Wind blows and tangles my hair
Telling me it’s secrets
Sun shines on my face
Covering me with smiles
You are not here, yet you are close
I feel you in my thoughts, my ears, my lips
There are still things unspoken
Things are so hard to say
I can shout it to the crashing waves
I can whisper to the blowing wind
I can smile the words to the sun
Yet if you were here I’d hold your hand
Hold you close and smile
Those words my darling you know
We both find them so hard to say
One day my love one day.

Angry wind

You howl around the house
Bending branches
Thrashing against the window
What do you want?
So Desperate to engage with me
I’m non responsive
You Force the glass, it shakes
You Rattle the doors
You roar and moan
I don’t understand you
Your fury is forceful
I am quiet
I stop and listen
I hear your screams, your pain
Your howling drops to a breeze
You whisper, I see you now
You are calm again
The world is still once more

A Perfect View

From the top of the hill

Forest stretches afar

Green patchwork hills

Sapphire blue sky

Wispy vapour trails

A  perfect view.

.

From the top of the cliff

Deep blue sea, Sun shimmering

White crests rising

Sailing boats bob up and down

Seagulls soar on the breeze

A perfect view

.

From the office window

Dark green trees

Blowing gently in the wind

Patchwork hiss in the distance

Pigeons bask in the sun

A perfect view

.

From the bedroom window

Small garden bursting with colour

Squirrels scampering across fences

Bees and flies sharing the air highways

Regardless of weather

Each a perfect view.

Summer Weather

Wind blew battering the trees

Furious and fast

Stirring up the leaves

Howling a gale

.

Rain fell swirling with the wind

Hard and wild

Drenching the ground

Falling sideways

.

Sky was grey as slate

Clouds moving quickly

Letting go of their rain

Darkening the day

.

I wanted the sun

Just a glimmer of hope

A small rainbow to be seen

No such chance

.

The rain persistently falling

Grizzly weather

Felt like autumn

In the middle of Summer

Red Flag Day

red flag

Eyes closed, the sounds at the beach

Waves roaring like lions

Crashing as they hit the pebbles

Wind whistling around my ears

Howling around the wind breakers

Seagull’s screeches muffled

Carried away by the wind

Squeals of children playing

Clang clang of the rope on the flagpole

.

Opening my eyes I see the waves

They hurtle towards the pebbles

Spray bounces into the sky

The clouds race across the blue sky

Sun disappearing behind the clouds

The flag flapping at the top of the flagpole

It’s a red flag day.

Spring day

Dark clouds race across the sky

Driving rain falls like curtains of lace

Wind blows in gusts bending still life

A shard of bright light breaks through

Delicate leaves ripped from branches

White shapes fall in swirls

Dancing, fluttering in blasts of air

Cherry blossom falls like flurries of snow

Another spring day is here
