Instantly I saw

my cat was obsessed with you

a menage a trois

Seductive power

and finely moulded beauty

in smooth alabaster

form flowing impressions through

the deft touch of the craftsman

Recapture innocence – tanka

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Cast aside the veil

life has placed over your sight

of the simpler things

discover delight and awe

in the world that surrounds you

Kellerman looked at the huge, carved head in awe. A whole gamut of questions flowed through his mind, the first and most important being who had carved the giant edifice and what did it represent? It could have been a dog, perhaps a stylised vision of it’s creators or even more intriguingly a true to life portrait. The only way to get any answers was to don his safety suit, and take a ride in the exploration module to have a much closer look. Despite some trepidation he knew that this is what they had sent him here to do, although finding evidence of other life forms had not been on the agenda.What alarmed him was the absence of any clearance from the control base. The last vicious lightning storm had closed down any possibility of microwave communication in the foreseeable future. Yet this was an opportunity that could not be missed, the thing had appeared undetected overnight and could easily disappear in the same short timespan. There was no point in waiting he thought, let’s get on with it. He walked through to the robing room and started to don his life support and survival suit, ready to embark on what could turn out to be the most momentous day in his and the whole of martiankind’s history.

The collection plate

passed quietly hand to hand

along the faithful.

Pockets and purses opened,

coins and notes gently placed

MLMM First line Friday 4-14-18

The dance lessons were not working. This, sadly, was the first thought that went through my mind as I gazed down at the forest floor. Oh yes, my little boy, the brightest and gaudiest of last years brood, hopping, arching, extending first one wing then the other. All to no avail, all the hens were watching him, you could see the smiles wrinkling their nostrils in snorts of derision as they shyly turned their laughing heads away, beaks wide open, as if catching fruit flies. It was no good him having lovely iridescent blue wings and orange and crimson breast if he couldn’t do the dance I had spent so long trying to teach him. Oh well, no mate for him, no little grand chicks for me this year. Lessons begin again in the morning.

Fun need not rely

on that rare glimpse of the sun

but it often helps

B haiku

Under stark branches

where abundant snowdrops bloomed

Spring remains verdant

A haiku

The old mountain ash

sentinel of the rockface

withstands Winter winds
