Keeping in Touch

i got your message

this morning –

it rattled these eyelids

in a bird song hour,

and needless to say,

the weather’s picked up

in such timely fashion –

taken a turn for the better


well I’m sure you’d agree,

the old boards could do

with running repairs –

a new coat of paint (a lick or two)

and when was the last time

we lifted the roof –

had one too many,

sunk a few ?


some nights i rant

or curse at the moon

chat with the dead –

though can’t quite seem

to give up the ghost son

but for what it’s  worth

i’m  glad you called,

rang a few bells

in a bird song hour

this morning

    Thanks chaps…downloaded SoundCloud for your show on ‘Moon Poetry’ Peter but I guess it’s not uploaded yet.

    Agree with John, wonderfully packaged in a bird song hour! 3rd stanza is my favourite, ‘rant or curse at the moon’, the dearest of ghosts at hand!
