Actualit├ęs

To the unjust, one trusts, just desserts come their way,
if it’s true, as they say, every dog has its day.

A plague and a pest on corrupt politicians:
it’s time they considered their ill-gained positions.

We used to have in olden times the desolation blues;
Now it’s masks and distancing and isolation news.

Tempest

Storm winds and rain still coming from the west;
don’t venture out if you’re not fully dressed.

Say what you like about storms, wind and flood,
they only leave heartache, and debris, and mud.

Monday morning, drab and drear,
Waiting for the sky to clear.

Couplets

Summer’s pond skaters are long gone,
The garden pool glazed like a mountain tarn.


Rather than battered and tempest-tossed,
This morning trees glistened with early frost.


Standing on the platform waiting for the train;
not too long till I’ll be holding her again.
