Twitter Haiku 7

The quick rustle
of a common lizard
on the bank of broken bracken.
Chris Packham

Thick clots of wood ants
massing on their drying nests
littered with the cigarette poo
of green woodpeckers.

Under a willow in east London,
in the glow of flickering bike lights,
listening to tales of green belts and modern living.
Daisy Froud

Have just done manly things with the car,
involving oil, and screenwash,
and a conversation with another man about a tyre.

sadden me.

Another installment
of existentialist political nature poetry,
today inspired by the spectacular sunrise
from which I take inspiration:

The sun as it rises
Is a spectacular red ball of flame
Like a Florida orange
Organic, non-GMO
Sweet yet tart
Bite into it
After it's peeled
And you can taste it
But don't look too closely
Or you could get
Blinded by the light
As did I.

Umbrella flap
like pterosaur wing.

Because your web page
kept auto-refreshing
I closed the tab without
reading it. Goodbye.

Bubble-gum, tom cats,
Steak and kidney pudding.
The scents of spring.

Looked up from my window
and there was a heron
flying over the centre of town,
low and very slowly,
against the wind.

Sometimes I awake in a Jury's Inn
and have no idea what city I'm in...
