In the City

It's noisy and smells
People tread on my feet.

I can't seem to breathe
when I run.

There are wide open spaces
and rabbits up trees

but I struggle to rest
when I'm done.

I shall Miss Him

I shall miss him.

I have to leave his place of  belonging and
hope that he returns when I do.

His magnificent aura; his piercing gaze; his arrogance;
I admire every inch of this magnificent creature
and when he turns his head and gives
a slight shake of symmetrical antlers
I feel a shudder of privilege and oneness.

I know that he sees me.

He came Back

He came again
in the half light of a quarter moon.

He gazed as I drew to a halt
and his large hypnotic eyes bored into me.

In an instant he was gone
turning with easy indifference
into the driving sleet.

I wanted to follow him.

On the way to Work

He stepped out of the darkness
and his eyes lit up.

His arrogance matched his
stature and he stood

as still as a monolith
and looked into the beam of light.

Then slowly, with practised indolence
he turned away and wandered back up the mountain.

That was the third time I saw him this week.

The Author

I went to a book signing tonight
and felt privileged.

I enjoyed his book so much.
It had everything
not least of which was the perfect description of this beautiful

And the story gripped me.
Life doesn't get much better than a really good book.

Making Soup

It should be called feelgood
because that's what it does to me.

Pause for Thought

A thought came to me today
and it made me pause.

I decided to run with it and now
I'm dreaming.

I like my thought.
It is most unusual I suspect

a most unusual suspect.

Day Too

Its been cold and very very wet.
Even wetter in the swimming pool
but I'm glad I went.

I always am.

Rivers are boiling in the glens
bursting their banks and making lazy sheep move.

Its a privilege.
I get to see all this beauty and then play in it.

This is going to be a good year.
