Poems (Park Series)

Tree by the shore

Arcing over the water, hanging

branches blanket the water.

Sunlight filters through the leaves,

ivy coiled around the trunk.

Blue Tit

Blue and yellow,

flaring and fading,

between drooping branches

and waters edge.


Water stewn with debris,

yet the fish still

navigate the

unfathomable depths.


Still, patient, a flash of grey

breaks the plane,

before reasserting



Glimpsed through the

leaves and branches,

a duckling

snapping at midges.


Petals break free

from their moorings,

fluttering on unsighted breeze,

carpeting the ground in lilac.


Black shadow, stark

against blue sky

braces against

strong winds.

    I like this collection. I could close my eyes after reading and picture each of these little park dwellers doing their own things in concert with one another. Really cool, have you ever seen the cartoon The Boondocks? The background scenes are frequently made of parks and other natural places. I think since I’m listening to Blackstar right now I may be a little influenced. I don’t know if you’re into east coast rap/R&B/Soul or not.

    • No, don’t think we ever got the Boondocks in Britain. Does A Tribe Call Quest count as East Coast Rap? Cause Low End Theory is one of the best albums ever.

      Actually I am developing a few of these poems. The bird ones. Just the way I reduced them to abstract colours. Just like the way they turned out.

      Thanks for the comment and glad you enjoyed the poems.
