Purple into Black Arrested Fractals The Indian Trail
Feasting on Mushrooms A Bell Rings Perhaps the Thrush


From the cracked gable
to gothic suburbia
the haws redden

__lavetera's late flowers
__grow out of the old chimney

metalwork furnace
all different colours
keep well away

__split fence – the weans
__steal from the coal hill

trees of Sherwood Forest
Robin Hood, Indian trail
scuffed shoes, torn clothes

__finding shade from the sun
__at a Spanish hotel

honeymoon couples
hoping to bring back warmth
home’s a lot cooler

__cooking the evening meal
__trifle for dessert

unzip the tent
for a late-night pee
the watching moon

__the lighthouse keeper in silence
__looks out at the storm

mixed packet seeds
put into pots and see what happens

__fresh eggs for breakfast
__a double yolk.
