three boots

three purple welly boots on the doorstep
did someone hop home?

three cats

three cats perched on the windowsill
they all turn towards me as I open the gate next door
and dart away in unison around the corner of the house

three dogs

I cannot hear the doorbell
but inside three dogs respond 
with a cacophony of barks, yaps and whines

A blustery January day
brings down a huge desiccated sycamore leaf
it crash landed and skidded to a halt at my feet

on the scruffy street
blue wing feathers glisten 
in the early June sunshine

baby birds

a clutch of sparrowlings
hesitate on the path
unsure which parent to follow

captured on a thread of cobweb
I lift it free
and it drifts
purposelessly away

Snow day

on the doorstep
tiny blue boots
another snowy day

5 am pot

the man is just a clot of shadow
lit by a tiny red glow
the familiar scent surrounds me 
in a cloud as I cycle past

5am frost

ahead, the frosted grass alongside the cycle track
glows eerily in the darkness

tram lines

In between the passing of trams
one pigeon splashes about in a deep puddle on the track
the others watch doubtfully
the water must be cold
