blackberrying with Dad

 

bypassing one another

in a slow circular dance

black lined fingernails

 

late October berries

circumnavigating nettles

next the heaven-rolled

 

sand-ploughed field

I am tenderly upbraided

for leaving stems

 

on my berries

A leaven sky

crouches, somnolent.

 

We amble gently

homewards, my basket

fuller than his.

 

 

Unfurling

 

The grass spears in diverse directions

And my soul unspills

Here, in this cafe by the towering library.

 

Hope unveils itself, shyly,

Purity tiptoes forth

And holiness steps humbly from behind a cloud.

 

A day with my father beneath

Overhanging dinosaurs

An invaded bees nest and battered basket

 

Wherein hides a clock tick-tocking until 6

When I can praise

My all-mighty, beloved God in heaven.
