And I am laughing to think it was THAT dance that I told someone I did that brought it in on the grey this morning. A jogger flushes the wood pigeons from their hide and seek game.   Thursday 30th March On the A road the pigeons are playing hide and seek in the budding branches.   Wednesday 29th March   A crow flies in low and dances like a turkey on the tarmac all black wings and flamenco. As it rises again I wonder if I ever saw a turkey dance. Monday 27th March   One degree rising to three as an arc of geese rainbows above me their v yet to form.

'No Terrapin Today'

 'No Terrapin Today'   My entry for The Poetry Archive Now! WordView 2022 Click the title link above P oem Description / Inspiration: The pond in Herne Bay Park holds many memories for me. My brother and I used to canoe on it, my sister and I saw a gull eat a duckling after swooping for bread and each visit home includes a walk to see if the terrapin is basking on the rock by the island. I don’t visit as often as I used to before the lockdown and often rely on updates from my sister. This poem was written after she rang me one day to tell me that the terrapin was not there. No Terrapin Today   Just her in the water.
