The Beach

You can smell the seaweed growing,
Taste the salt tang in the air
You can feel the cold wind blowing
Running tendrils through your hair
You’re on the beach

You can feel the insects nipping,
See the seagull as he flies,
Feel the sand ‘neath your foot slipping,
Hear the ocean as it sighs
You’re on the beach

There’s a sense of open spaces
‘Neath the azure crystal skies
Wipes all mem’ry of other places
From the world behind your eyes
You’re on the beach

There’s a feeling of elation
As you walk with carefree tread
And you join the jubilation
Of the eagle overhead
You’re on the beach

You climb a bit of driftwood
To get a better view
And you wish that you could fly above
The dunes surrounding you
You’re on the beach

NIGHT-TIME LISTENING

I listen out, on a starless new night
to hear the sounds under the pitch black veil,
to hear the starling sounds of the hidden
world that lies outside, beyond my home wall

The path that runs the back, from pub to road
Often bears witness to men being cats,
singing out of tune as they stagger home
oblivious to the Simon Callow in us all.

The motorway never sleeps, it's arteries
clogged with night drivers desperate to get
home or to the depot – no relief yet
as their engines reach my tired brain.

The rain follows soon, dripping pitter-pat
on the concrete outside, every noise a
crack that splits the road and my ears
put sinister outsiders in the frame.

There is, it seems, no sleep for me tonight.
The dark is gaining the new morning hues.
The cat scratches the door for her breakfast
I might as well get up. I might then write -
it seems I'm certainly in the right mood!

Post Re: Poetry Corner
I was in an odd mood this evening...

Senses seize as, outside, the hunter hears,
his ears pricked for the slightest of all sounds.
So you quiet your breath against your death
and bury yourself in the straw and crops
of the barn. His gun clicks at a stray sound
and he looks into the barn. His eyes probe
the dark heart, searching for light and depth
judging, forever searching for drops
that give away your presence to him now.
He steps inside, raises his gun and calls
for you to surrender but you know you
cannot. You know you may die here,
in this barn, in this fear with hope so near
the border clear across to neutral land
just miles from your prison unplanned.
A step closer, he's looking over you
Nerve break? Nerve hold? Run? Stay? What will you do?
