Two Echoes of Birr

In a library loft listening
as children’s chirrups 
rise noisily from below
Suddenly no sound
Am I struck deaf ?
No just power of “Shush!”

Sitting sipping coffee
on yellow chair by table
and eating cake.
I see her black bag with decal
of shining silver leaves
with bright picked pearls
Shining brightly.

September has warm winds
scintillating sensuously stirring
Floats breeze over trees
as a murmured prayer

The poet is enamoured enraptured, 
awash with tumbled phrases.
Drunkenly adrift, absorbed
by a gently given gift.

Bloggers Be Aware

Beware of mia more

Beware of a sickly slag
Slithering silently
Through dark air
With malicious fangs

Suffering of poison
self administered
Shares her pain
With vacuous vehement

Beware of misanthropy
swimming from the depths
of depravity
Intent on causing trouble

O bloggers beware
and never share.
Do not engage
Delete at source.

An ode to a Blogger

I’ve been waiting for this final of Romania.
Patiently you know twiddling my fingers,
then anxiously chewing my nails.
Even spent time cutting the grass.
Finally I went on a fast, gave up biscuits,
chocolate too, time went by the poor
reader became thinner and now my
sufferings are over you’ve posted at last!
