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
