Autumn

We’ve had a Saharan heatwave,

Moonsoons. Flooding. Drought.

This Summer has been a challenge

Now here it is…Autumn’s out.

 

A little coolness in the air,

The birds have a different flight.

There’s a whisper in the hedgerow

Can you see, it’s Autumn Light

 

Feeling battered and burnt by Summer?

Now’s the time to let it go.

Seasons have their own momentum

Jusr relax, and feel its flow

 

Now we reap the harvest

Of what we sowed all year

Let the fruit of love and labour lost

Nourish and revere?

 

Autumn light has a clarity

Take advantage of the view.

Watch the old year fall away

Ready for something new.

Summer in the City

Summer in the city

Heat rising from dusty pavements

Dogs panting in the shade

Keep thinking about you

 

Summer in the city

Sleeping under a satin sheet

Dreaming about your breasts

Wondering when we can meet

 

Summer in the city

Wrong kind of heat for transport

Buses trains, tubes and traffic

Grind to a dusty halt

 

Summer in the city

Lying on the grass in the park

Eating, drinking flirting

Al Fresco with friends

 

Summer in the city

Feeling its hot rumble

Longing to see you, without any

Clothes or other considerations

 

Summer in the city

Everyone’s feeling tetchy

Waiting for life after work

Playtime Gaytime Nicetime

 

Summer in the city

Escaping to the sea-side

Then diving back into

The city’s hot waiting mouth
