Or, as Ian says... a "dragonsnap"!

A snapdragon is
a boy
grinning gleefully
chomping into life

The Heavens Declare

Sentinels of the night
still and silent
Are roaring furnaces
surging & bursting
Rushing away at
unfathomable speeds
Sending messages across the gap
Bobbing gently upon waves of light
Arriving millions of years late
Even the night sky is a veil
-like the blue cocoon we adore
Twitch it aside,
what will we see?
The One who wears stars
as his crown?

Evening by the Lake

autumn leaves glow from within
sun-caught jewels
spice is in the air

Slivers of night are falling into day
and the breeze is carrying
the memory of morning

The sludge of toil is washing away
a wind is blowing-
like that first quiet breath
which awoke my soul

Twelve red roses floated to me
-your hand is warm
we are silent together
stones beneath our feet
listening for the wind, the birds, the muse

The clouds are gauzy and colourful
rolls of darkness are hurrying behind them
night is coming
our words grow misty

We are climbing together.
