Haiku: Dreamcatcher

a blue and white whippet on the beach on a misty morning

dreamcatcher
our old telepathy
works again

Dreamcatcher was first published in Frameless Sky Issue 12, a poetry video journal featuring artwork by Hemapriya Chellappan, music by Corine Timmer and poems from more than fifty poets from all corners of the world. A very big thank you to Christine L Villa and Shloka Shankar for featuring my poem and putting this beautiful edition together.

Into the Warp and Woof, an anthology with a selection of contributions from the first ten issues of Frameless Sky, is now available in pdf and paperback format from Velvet Dusk Publishing.

Tanka: Wings of a Cormorant

a black whippet in a black jacket carrying a yellow ball on the beach

birds on a rock
dogs returning yellow balls
over and over
it’s easy to disappear
in the magic of it all

one day of warm
can melt all the snows

seals bask in the sun
calling their pups

watched by a cormorant
on a pole in the river

cast your net to
capture the sounds

follow your gaze

feel nature give poetry
in her making
