Seeds grow in spirals

Mathematically perfect

Shine your light on me

Oh, belladonna

Hallucinations before

Beauty makes me blind

I light a candle

Outside, the void seems to grow

I light another

The food is tasteless

Even salty liquorice

Is stopped by the snot

Clouds are many things

Water vapour and dream fluff

Now they are bunnies

With heart standing still

Eurasian jay on the grass

A suburban joy

Out on my terrace

With ears twitching at the birds

Silent visitor

Above, a contrail

Paints a pink line in the sky

Are you on that plane?

 

I Hear You

Washing up alone

Scraping off dry pizza cheese

I hear you humming

So many want love

Even from total strangers

Earning it is rare
