Friday 5 March 2021


Across the field
to dawn at sea

a corner in the midday sun
beneath the sky at night

alone within his heart

the warrior waits for death
the watchman waits for dawn

to this have I been called
to wait on God

a moment forever
in expectancy of surprise.

Thursday 18 February 2021


A hoarse groan 
Echoes in the cave
That you have become

Death has been mining
Digging out the rich
Mineral of your life

Haunting your emptiness
Breaking our closeness


Not knowing what
Your eyes are trying
To say

Their pleading

And the fear
That you want me
To leave before it’s time

We no longer know
How to be
With each other

A tautness has entered
To replace the ease
Learned of lifelong


Parting is approaching
And we are not able
For it
