Bright pink cloak wraps a surprise
A spadix awaits

The gold in a sunset
Is not a miner’s fools gold
A glint in the eye

How peaceful the mist
Soft echo of a whisper
Cloud embraces the land

Burst upon the stage
With fiery spectacle
Magic show begins

A white cloud slips through blue skies
My feet crunch the frost

To give hope to all nations
Joyous freedom ring

The men pause from hard labour
Pastels fill the sky

Open to the Sky

I expect a train
To barrel through this window
Thanks Monsieur Magritte

Pirouette down the staircase
While the crowd applauds

A jagged dagger
Thrust into the pliant sky
Snow pours from the wound

Planning a night of romance
Or watch Jeopardy

Thank you, Janice

Give your senses refreshment
With a petal wave

On bright wintry days
The sun shines off snow-capped peaks
Breathe the fresh, crisp air

The show’s about to begin
Cue the orchestra

Franz Josef Glacier

A waning glacier
This valley’s evolution
To a grinding halt

Built to last?

Crackled surfaces
Boarded up windows and doors
Decay is alive

I'm Late

Giant white rabbit
A very important date
Where’s that rabbit hole?
