A snow-dome shaken,
a slow Big Bang,
a dimension fulfilled,
an ecstasy of ticker-tape,
banknotes of confetti
spinning down from Heaven,
buoyant till the end –
a row of origami.


My Favourite Place

Every bird a kite I fly;
every tree a friend;
every cloud a sailing ship
on an ocean without end.

My favourite place: a shady grove
with every shade of green.
I’d love to stay and always be
as blended in the scene.
