Why The Winter Blues?

With the sun getting lazier and lazier these November nights, returning to its slumbers faster than I’m sure the majority if us would like, as a result, I hear the miserable moans and groans of grief-stricken commuters. The winter blues have well and truly set in for some and it’s still only autumn! They haveContinue reading “Why The Winter Blues?”

Poem: 5th November 1605

The dank presence of gunpowder fills their lungs. Settling smoke distorts their view. 5th November 1605 – a night like any other. If only this were really  true.   Traders to country, traitors to crown. The Gunpowder Plot, Dismembered, put down.   Destructive paths each had chosen, Treasonous, treacherous. Yet failed to make any  explosion.Continue reading “Poem: 5th November 1605”

Poem: Cold

It’s cold outside, My windows – opaque. Toes –  curled up tight. Hands – beginning to shake.   Amber embers of fire flicker, I begin to rock.

Night has fallen upon us, Yet it’s only half past 4.   A tar-like black shrouds the moon in mystery. IsContinue reading “Poem: Halloween”

Poem – The Fall of Autumn

Death never looked so beautiful, Leaf litter burnt orange in the fading Autumn sun, Crunches beneath my feet as the day carries on.   The air is colder, Green is no longer seen. The days are shorter, A Midsummer Night is merely but a dream.   Ochre, pumpkin,  chestnut and crimson. All show their trueContinue reading “Poem – The Fall of Autumn”
