5 o'clock sky

My poplin dress of baby  blue,
all smocking and puffed sleeves,
with scattered flowers of some pinky hue
through which raspberry ice cream weaves.

Cat on my lap
Hot water bottle
Sinuously stretching 
Soft paw pad
My face

haiwinds haiku 2

Nuns, a flotilla
Tacking fearlessly windward,
Their black sails snapping.

sunday morning 
church bells
pavement cafè croissants coffee
bicycles and children running
chihuahua in a yellow coat 
pebbled alleys bookshop windows  
seaspray wind and salted lips
swept  home upon its briny bluster
to bisto gravy and brussel sprouts
