Illusive

Thinking about reading
Thinking about writing

I stop briefly
Put pencil to paper
Then slip back

Into the comfort of thoughts

Decoration

A band of scarlet crepe paper
Criss-crosses
Up the banister
Cross-crisses
Back down again
The loose end starting to unravel

Write?

Words of things
Without sophistication

Pen to paper
Keyboard to screen
Thoughts made words

Without elaboration

Poetic qualities
Subjective
Or absent?

Train times

Waiting time
Sitting time
Writing time
Reading time
Watching time 
Sleeping time

Cradled by the rock
And the hum
Of towns and country
Rolling on by

Jewels

In the grey evening light
Raindrops glisten on the washing line
Recall 
Dewdrops sparkle on the spider web
In the grey morning light
