Porcelain face, eyes tell
of benign dreams

a whisper, words
that crackle

the eyes widen
burn amber

and it’s then
that you know

Rocks and kelp
rocks in the shape of seals

crabs, weeds
sun-fire in the sky

moonlight on the last night
moon mirrors on cracked glass

the broken windows
of the stone barn

black stones
straw and owls

Gelert Big-Dome-4
slug blue, red trim
sleeping pod - home

sweat lodges, tarp hides
stretched over hazel poles

heartwood flames 
in cast-iron stoves

canvas, rain
guy ropes peg down
a space to breathe

in a place you've never 
seen before

Orange segues 
with blue
bands in between 
tints of yellow, green

the colour of rock?
burnt umber
and steps in the shape
of the tide, the wind

ice diamonds
ominous rust
jelly fish the size
of dinner plates

orange segues with blue
bands in between 
hints of yellow, green
land, Atlantic.

The colour of rain
dream, awakening, sound
of clouds. Drift into, in two.

Shell and skin, aluminium
the rain needling a pattern
over and through a lichen patina.

The shape of the rain 
and a lifetime, the same life
connected, needle and thread
to the one, many
then now…

Waver and dazzle, 
kaleidoscopic diamonds 
without colours 
twist transparent patterns

engine, heat under the bonnet 
sizzles in the rain fall until
a sensation like surfacing
a sudden fracture in the ice

another life!

The swing of the lantern -
beams break the dark

light paints the wall.
