Through shady green shields,
feebly filtering sunbeams
warm up a park bench.

mum clasps her child to her breast,
boats sail far away.

fade against a glum background
of slender columns.

reflected on the lagoon -
still, glittering night.

Sunday promenade,
radiant smiles, kids holding hands,
at the riverside.

Snowy river banks,
opaque blue icy surface
viewed from the stone bridge.

Sleek spinning tops whirl
round a wooden rocking horse -
children's gay laughter.

Patterned carpets wait,
temporarily rolled up,
as I'm hoovering.

A bold moth wings to
the flowery wallpaper
lit by the moon gleam.

Sunday, 22 January 2012

Silently sitting
by the warm glow of the fire
watch the rain pour down.

On top of the hedge,
shivering small new born leaves
sway in the cold wind.

Orange-hued weird clouds
on a livid dusky sky,
announce the next storm.

Vigorous brush strokes
blend red with yellow and blue -
an artist's palette.

A smooth silky shawl
around my naked shoulders,
recalls dad's warm hug.

Spread wings of white gulls
against a greyish winter sky
skim water ripples.

Small sparrows' swift claws
sink scared into the shiny
white mantle of snow.

Conveying dim details
through stylish dark field glasses,
in fancy notebooks.

Mossy green pine tops
raising from behind tiled roofs
wave in the cool breeze.

Through pearl grey curtains,
white beams of glittering light
cheer up my lone lunch.

Amber hat on a
gold-patterned burgundy bag -
at the garden gate.

A globe, stamps scattered
on antiqued writing paper -
yearning for closeness.

White gloves on a lying
tobacco brown umbrella,
old papers nearby.

Sunday, 8 January 2012

Worn-out leather boots,
ochre strings still tightly tied -
walk the empty march.

Walnuts, red berries
amongst fir needles and moss
on grey winter beds.

A pale old pink frame,
pine twigs decorate one side -
mum gives a faint smile.

Show deep devotion,
the highest satisfaction,
kittens' joyful purrs.

Wednesday, 4 January 2012

Stemmed cinnamon sticks, cloves,
star-anice, acorns, pine cones,
bound together by golden wires,
lie as a whole on a dried orange slice;
by velvety bright red ribbons,
tiny ochre leaves,
a silken touch of sapphire beads -
warm atmosphere
in a spicy composition.

Cranberry clusters
elegantly hang over
a glass of red wine.

Muffins, cream puffs, round
a candied panettone -
New Year's tastiness.

A juicy sliced pear,
raspberry jam poured hot, soaks
its smooth velvet pulp.
