ALOOF

Unlinked to the tree
he doesn’t know his family–
stands aloof, questions

ancestors don’t change
the mood of the weather:
the leaf needs his name

Holidays

Turkey, Greece or Cape Verde
Choose the place that has the weather
Half term prices or pay school fines
Relax at cost to keep your tether

Glimmer

A cold wind today. Glimmer of sun behind clouds. Glorious weather.

Rhythm

being lulled to sleep
by the tempo of the #rain
listening to the song it’s singing
as dances on my window pane
peacefulness overtakes
my mind
then I #dream

Loves storm

She married the rain

for her life affirming nature

they swam as one woman

a love no umbrella or church or state

could ever break
