Two of everything

A Pair of Pears
Two pears

perfect snack for an afternoon

sweet as nature intended

and fit perfect in the hand





A pair of Nautilus Shells
Two Nautilus shells

retrieved with others in the hunt

for the perfect paella

Pair of woollen gloves

Pulled over two frosty hands

Perfect on cold winter days

Childhood Growing up

Hands

I

Holding on

to a big hand

when very little

II

Little spoons

for eating up

mushed up rusks

III

Counter-weight

as wobbly feet

master walking

IV

Calculation , English and Art

Mastered over weeks months and years

With help from Mum and Dad

V

Pulling on Shirts, Jumpers and Trousers

On way to big school

Waving hello to new friends

6th April 2020

While i was busy sketching away

in the kitchen, dad was busy

zipping around with tomatoes and beef

and carrots and onion, creating a wonderful dish, based

round the pasta shells that were

dancing away in boiling water, and a little olive oil

Street

Another tail from inky

I think of it like a branch of a tree

follow it back long enough and you’ll find

the grocers , the bakers, the butchers

schools and doctors

maybe a theatre or gallery

and houses tall and small

and a much larger branch

pointing off to another part of town

perhaps even – another town

if you have a set of wheels
