Trap door

The twists and turns of the maze
leave you lost and in a daze
but just when you think you’re going to win
you have to start all over again.

Packing up

Sweeping up the dust
and emptying it into boxes
alongside trophies and wedding pictures,
memorabilia and regalia.

Ah, my love…


A seed, planted in fertile soil,
grows roots and reaches for the heavens,
swells with knowledge,
and dispenses wisdom.

The bridge

tea and biscuits,
dinner and a movie,
long kisses under the moonlight,
the bed.
