Fox-red rabbit with snowdrop paws
peeping through the sodden grass.
Unaware that black cat ears
are just a whisker away.
A car backfires, shotgun loud.
Hind legs jerk, and rabbit’s gone.
Black cat sits, back straight, searching
reveals his sinister intent.
Whiskers tweak, he stalks away.

There on her dressing table,
hidden in the clutter,
lay the spherical perfume bottle,
dully shimmering under the dust.
Holding it close, she wafted before me.
Although gone, she lingers here in my mind.
Flowery, gentle and always there,
present in every room,
giving love to a lonely child.
They squabble now over her riches,
as I slip her under my coat
next to my heart
and take her safely home
My new poetry book, Autumn Gold, is now live on kindle. To celebrate I’m giving all my other books away free for 23 and 24 December 2015. If you fancy reading any of them then download them for free and read at your leisure.
My new poetry book contains some rhyming and non-rhyming poems, in all sorts of formats. I hope the poems make you smile, cry and laugh.
It will cost $2.99 or £2.01, but it will be free on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. My first book of poetry, Nature’s Gold, is free on 23 and 24 December 2015.
