Swaying in the Sun


swaying in the sun

you were right when I saw you

in the deep frost, snowdrops


This poem was written in response to March 18, 2018: Ostara, another great prompt at Seeds and Sand. The prompt and poems can be read here. And, to finish, here’s Utah Saints, Kate Bush, and some gratuitous slo-mo t & a –



twilight frost gets ignored

in a doorway, in a basque

in December


working in Soho

the street’s damp blooms

in the twilight frost



This poem was written in response to Carpe Diem Special #124, Richard Wright’s last haiku of this month, another great prompt hosted by Chèvrefeuille at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai. All of the poems in the link-up can be read here.  Admittedly, the prompt took me a long way from Richard Wright’s haiku this time, but ah well… here are The Pogues.
