An early morning train journey from Newcastle to London


from Feathers of Faith, released April 6, 2019
Heavenly haar hangs over everything
As May blossom hangs heavily on the thorn
Such shrouded morn
Awaits burst of cloud
To explode in summer's mirth of sun

Humid heart-broken flowers
Kissing the breeze
of Honey bee's
Busy wing
The country dozes patiently

The clock flower
Ready to wait
Securely confident of God's breath
Zephyr or Chinook

The town rushes to get ahead
Of where it must be by now
Missing the purpose
Grimly k'owtowing the clock-tower
And boss

Full morning inhaled
Surveys the route
taken since dawn
And sets path accordingly
Anticipating review and satisfied rest
Of day done

Yet sloggers shun the middle hour
Wishing back the time
Warring for stuff's inadequacies

Blossom will hang again tomorrow
And then
Till its flower is served
And ready to wait
Securely confident
Of nought and all
