The Poeming: Day 6


I.
Sun Trap

down there in the lower third,
where the purple-brown grapes grow,
and the March wind flows like a river,

down there where four leaf clover
always grow, and grey squirrels hide
acorns between the strawberry plants

is a sun trap that denies
a winter day its chill.

II.
Spring Trap

the hawthorn that
was bare on Saturday,
is green today.
March daffodils, soon
April tulips.
Bluebells, a colour
that shames the sky.
Patio chairs, cleaned.
And pallets of compost
were delivered today.

The Ride

By choice,
of course,
he rides a horned pink cow.
His brothers
ride a horse
by the skin of their pearly hides.
He scarifies the earth
and scatters rats and bats.
but his heart feels
flat, he’s
forgotten his name,
and says with
a gnat-thin voice,

Where is my avian hat?
