short forms, March 18th 2016

algae
from the park pond
floating in bathwater
muddy shoes, a scented candle
gas leak

red blooms
amongst winter-dry leaves
crisp packets

his snores
wake me from sleep
soothing
contented grunts
reminiscent of an old dog

daily task
of writing poems
no-one will see

a discipline I didn't lose
when all my other writing
deserted me

rubbish now, of course
