Daily poem 42:

It sounds from the sound of gunshots that there is another ‘battue’ going on and some unfortunate animal is being exterminated.


This fragile peace


where bees drift and birds sing

and in the ripple of the stream, a free wind blows.


A mind set on death

a shadow on the edge

of these quiet places.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.
