dead pheasant

spread for flight –

maggots celebrate




song in the heather

rising wind in the ribs of

an old piano

damp meadowsweet –

horses in mist

up to their oxters




caught in the branches

of a dead oak tree,

Cuckoo-spit laden

grassblades, heavy in summer:

frothy larval wombs




Silver-white frostwork

sleeping in winter-clad towns:

Yule hibernation

Puffs of black smoke

waft to the left and right –

fog engraves winter
