Recipe for happiness

go away
far away
alone

don’t phone

embrace
the longing


In-between

Suddenly, halfway through
a steak and Guinness pie
at the Yew Tree in Chew Stoke
I realise this is happiness.

I have been away from you
and tomorrow I’m flying home.

There are yellowhammers
in the yew tree, and
I want to reach for my camera –
but they would only fly away.


Birthday

this morning
I found
in my sock drawer
that missing
grey cotton
sock

it’s my birthday

maybe
all’s well
with the world
after all
