Time Keeper

wintry sundial

 

Whether Time gets snowed right in,

or whether snow times out,

crisply carving hourglass sands

leave shadows of a doubt.

.

As clock-chimes cast aspersions

where Time is running thin,

moments freeze on crystal shores

where memories have been.

The Closet

She smiles,

a slow, careful smile

that curdles on top like bad milk,

a skin freezing in increments over troubled

waters.  “I don’t know what you’re talking about,” she says

to the accompaniment of the skeletons doing a jig in her coat closet.

Raindrops on Roses

Raindrops on roses,

textbook cohesion;

biddies gathering to gossip,

assembly converging to count up favourite things.

Seasonal storehouse collecting cacophony

of drips, drops,

splashes and splutters –

the sound of music.
