stomach bug blues

stomach bug blues
i made it to the water’s edge
greeted by these hues
the pictures didn’t get it
the odd pane of crystal glass
totally smooth
perfectly clear
every so many waves
right to my feet

even before I went there
it was like the sun was new

A. H / K. H-H (15th & 16th January 2020)

Pale Light


pale light east blind white
fresh daybreak laid untrodden
awakens past life

A. H / K. H-H (16th April 2019)

Dawn Lights Golden Hearts

dawn lights golden hearts
through friendly thin white curtains
brights orange flowered walls
almost makes painted birds sing
poets embrace their heart-song

A. H / K. H-H (13th December)

December, Blinded Window

tree shadow plays on the blinded window
branches blown on the wind
airy world now rippling pond
dappled light clear blue almost nothing
trickling cold from December’s lake
endless fascination
treasure in this minute’s type

(c) A. Hurford / K. H-H (8 December 2018)

heart deep hope

leaf-light slumbers deep down
sleep deep and dreamy beating
life back parasympathetically
at harsh lit days
glimmer nest treasure light
what life may be
before it had been

(c) A. Hurford / K. H-H (28 November 2018)

Prayer ii

sometimes its like the light is speaking
though let’s be cautious of that
not words, nor even suggestions
playing in the water shower’s head
something confirming

knot iii

so often i make
light difficult to follow
shelters, diversions
choices hidden, forgotten,

yet light remains to follow

am i really tied at all

A. H / K. H-H (1 November 2018)


Make of yourself a light                                                          – Buddha i’ve always loved to watch the light although darkness claims my shame it is to light that I have turned…


as dawn falls golden
past bronze to lead remember
all sunlight’s broken

(c) A. H / K. H-H (19th May 2018)
