fighting
against the yobs
who targeted her car
second-hand Tesla with key marks.
Racists.

morning rain
the fresh shoots of marigold seedlings
weekend scattered


© Rachel Green 2017

late start
I wait for the bathroom to clear
before rising
too many funny posts
streaming eyes


© Rachel Green 2017

protein powder
a meal replacement
for active peeps

busy day
but with double jiu-jitsu
I might skip gym

even busier tomorrow

Dead mouse. The cat looks smug.

sending
a last message
to her previous love.
Is the warranty still valid?
Refund.

packets of seeds
distributed along the borders
hungry sparrows


© Rachel Green 2017

wasted coin
a tenner spent of a mindfulness course
mostly ignored
I look forward to the posts
but don't practice the suggestions


© Rachel Green 2017

kickboxing practice
my balance improving
punches more accurate

I learn crescent kick,
axe, reverse strike,
reverse kick.

Supplety is not my strongpoint

Walking to the gym. Aching knees.

old man
embraces death
at the hands of bullies
just to prove a point of their guilt.
Justice

dandelion heads
gathering lawn moss
two sparrows


© Rachel Green 2017

over tired
listening to the bickering
of magpies
overgrown garden hedge
in need of cutting


© Rachel Green 2017

product testing
a new analogue watch
and protein powder

The former looks nice
but when will I ever use it
...mobile phone...

the powder is tasty indeed

leg day. Work out before dinner.

the grave
of her father
still lacks a headstone.
Why should she remember a man
who killed?

spring sun
examining the fresh-cut lawn
sparrows


© Rachel Green 2017

tiny slugs
a few millimeters long
invade the kitchen
Bad move, lads,
I loathe you little shits


© Rachel Green 2017

evening fire
we pull out honeysuckle,
philadelphud

Last year's construction
of a wooden rose arch
feeds greedy flames

cutting brambles


© Rachel Green 2017

New jeans. Her overhanging belly. Despair

outline
chalk marks on wood
where the body was found
The stains on the parquet flooring
remain


© Rachel Green 2017

polyanthus
a hint of purple in the garden
chocolate wrappers


© Rachel Green 2017

discussions
the old dog aging
senility
We discuss final options
while his tail wags


© Rachel Green 2017

guard passing
broken down
until I hate jiu-jitsu

the perseverance
of a patient teacher
coaxing and coaching

fresh confidence


© Rachel Green 2017

bicep curls. Her body slowly changing.

walking
telling the tales
relating to the death
of her fifteen year old brother.
No truths.


© Rachel Green 2017

daffodils
in the spring sunshine
allergies


© Rachel Green 2017

funeral
a sad affair
layered in dignity
A carriage and four horses
takes her to her rest


© Rachel Green 2017

two days off
from going to the gym
I feel fat again

my expectations
decrease exponentially
each passing day

jui-jitsu struggles


© Rachel Green 2017

charmed life. Her financial pressures ease.

her house
lost to a fire
started by her brother
who never  escaped his actions
stupid


© Rachel Green 2017

morning sun
occluded by clouds
funereal moping


© Rachel Green 2017

yesterday's funeral
turns out to be today
empty church
At least we didn't miss it
oldest friend


© Rachel Green 2017

a promise
made to myself
broken

I must write again
but novels never seem worthy
best remain unpublished

discouraging


© Rachel Green 2017

the pleasures of delight. Teaching jiu-jitsu.
