(for Asha & Michael)


The heart can speak

yet it sings

a bird can walk

but it wings


Lightness soars but


even in this woestruck

world of care


The Modern World

wreaks gravitas

more than

spirit can bear


Let the lilting heart

yearn it to sing

let the chirruping bird

learn it to wing


Whilst we on the shore

worry work and weep

look in the seas

dolphins love – and leap!
