I craft this day to my pleasing,

small rituals harbour meaning.

I nod to the snowdrops and daffodils,

as I make my gentle way. 

Walking backwards,

down a path well know.

A familiar fresh,

that tells me to keep my head up.

Lichen wearing tree waves g’day.

And i think,

of the night we walked down the mountainside,

not once looking at the ground.

Two girls we’re beheaded in Morocco last week,

mother says.

Doubtful fear clouds hopes and dreams.

To reside in this safe place, we never leave.

 

From one warm home to another,

both imaginative, but this one is hungry.

Soft words of reassurance, light up eyes.

We are those who chase life.

 

Walking with myself in the dusk,

I happen across the remains of a bird.

Only it’s head it to be found.

Once wore a Magpies coat.

 

One for sorrow, so they say.

But to find a head, no body,

must be better than a body with no head.

Here I have gained the head of a bird.

 

With this good omen I head home,

only to find the first of the spring daises. 

Certainly after all,

a good omen.
