lunchtime storm
in my egg sandwich
the taste of rain
intermittent rain
under a red umbrella
lovers share coffee
the cold stare of eggs
on her plate
guests gone
an allegro movement
as I clear the table
[famous reporter #  27 : Jun 2003]
silent dawn
in the tethered barge
a tramp
ageing -
each day a familiar word
slips through the net
rainy spell
the firefighters eat
their Christmas cake
New Year's Eve
all the riddles
I haven't solved
long convalescence
sitting it out
my dog and I
gurgling baby
from my garden the scent
of ripe plums

[famous reporter #  35 : Dec 2007]

the first bus -
eight people chatting
in four different tongues
lunch break -
squatting on the kerb
house painters
thickening fog -
the lame man hops
onto the last train
mountain lookout -
Dad's firm hands
on my shoulders
faster and faster
my corgi pup
chases his tail
