Waiting

Waiting
for my
computer to update
slows down working progress.
Impatience!

All Alone

A Poignant Picture
(An Elfje)

Seated
all alone
in the chapel.
Her beloved consort's funeral.
Majesty.
-----------------------------------

This is my last contribution to the Poetry Group’s Platinum Jubilee Collection. It recalls the iconic image of the Queen at the Duke of Edinburgh’s low-key funeral, held under COVID restriction at St George’s Chapel, Windsor on 3rd June 2021.

When you read this I will be away at the Tandem Club National Rally, which is going to be rather a challenge with my arm in plaster! The boss is also taking a solo bike in case I can’t cope with cycling every day, even on the back of a tandem. All being well I’ll be back next week.

Step by Step

Spring
calmly progresses
step by step
while I rush about
busily.

Bright

Bright
red splash;
colourful garden shrub
on a grey day.
Peiris.

Tears

Tears
fall from
cloud covered sky.
The world grieves for
Ukraine.

Blossom

Bare
Prunus branches
now covered in
vibrant shades of pink
blossom.

Drying

Cold,
sunny, breezy.
Good drying day.
Washing on the whirly-gig,
dancing.

Laptop

Laptop
playing up.
Technology is wonderful
when working; when not -
frustrating!

Town

Town,
early morning;
the best time 
to go shopping. Fewer
people.

Between Storms

Lull
between storms.
Bright and sunny.
Chill in the air.
Respite.
