The Red Rose

You offer me a red rose
The little prince loved her

I hold her carefully
Because of the thorns

I breathe your rose
And am transported

Shiatsu

soft light
tinkling water
linen white futon
her thumbs walk
cat-like along
my resistance
body yields
mind opens
timeless tranquility


*for Mary Ingram with thanks

Let there be Light

Harsh light
Summer sun
Baking the earth

Autumn
Soft light
Long shadows

Winter light
Cool blue
Shivering

Spring-time
New light
Bright jonquils

The light
Of understanding
In your eyes

Jerry's Journey - Part VIII - A Foggy Day

This morning
fog clothed
the street lights
in Bergman black and white

Later
at the hospital
another fog
lifted a little,
to reveal
more
of the you
that used to be
before.

And when I left you tonight,
you remembered to say
‘Drive carefully.’

Autumn is Singing in the Hills

Autumn is singing in the hills,
Sunshine is laughing on the breeze,
Red leaves are dancing from the eaves,
Wood-smoke is ribboning the trees.

Autumn is singing in the hills.
Pale moths are speckling the light,
Moonshine is silvering the night,
Two hearts are purring with delight.

Global Warming?

Strange light of summer sun
hanging like orb of copper
suspended in soft gauze

Strange smell of summer smoke
oppressive like winter fog
but much too hot

Strange sound of summer birds
with the soft pedal on
subdued, surreal

Bushfires far away seem much too close
and yet the light is beautiful
almost transcendental...

Sad is Stupid

I'm sorry you're sad

'I'm not sad.
Don't use that word.
Sad is stupid.'

... cos when you're sad
you're always angry
and push me away

'Of course I'm angry.
I'm pissed off
I'm allowed to be angry.'

so I guess I'd better
leave you alone
- and not show I mind -
till you're happy again

'Happy?

You're Real

You're flesh and blood
and taste and smell
and skin and soft
and body familiar

You're forty three years
of history and hurting
and lusting and laughter
and passion and pain

You're breakfast and dinner
and shopping and habit
and taken for grantedness
and here and now

You're the love of my life
- I forgot for a moment -
I adore and desire you
you're real.

A Pocketful of Sympathy

A pocketful of sympathy
Is really rather wonderful
To stop a scratch from stinging
Or a bruise from black and bluing

A pocketful of sympathy
Can stop a heart from hurting
Or catch a tear that's falling
Like a raindropp down a cheek

A pocketful of sympathy
Costs absolutely nothing
It's the cheapest kind of plaster
That you'll ever ever find

And a pocketful of sympathy
Is like Lindsay's Magic Pudding
'Cos the more of it you give away
The more you leave behind

My Daughter on her Thirtieth Birthday

A naked girl in the bath
Suds floating, eyes shining

A BIG girl riding Mr. Horsy-bike
Birthday party, green balloon

A special girl grooming Sheike
Sweat streaming, cheeks flaming

A Co-op girl in the kitchen
Baking sponges with her friend Rosie

A magic girl playing Ariel,
'Merrily, merrily shall I live now'

A gentle girl at my bedside
When I was sick with pneumonia

A grown-up girl working hard
Errol Street, massage
