Hiver “haiku”

low watercolour sun

shining through ribs

of emaciated trees

 

the starlings murmur

a flash mob in the sky

dancing Bolero

 

mistletoe lollipops

standing perfectly still

Coldstream guards

 

bright turquoise mask

wrapped in plastic

a time of the signs

 

in places bucolic

have hands washed

quite ethanolic

 

silver birches

reflecting on pond

three wise men
