Call It Cirrus In The Sky And The Hard Working Postman

Ships on High Seas & Post-Cards To Mother


A Million tiny lives today

created by a silver spark.


Ships on high seas

carry some of these.


The time did send

the sons from home,

it sent them off to sail.


To sail the world

to take and bring

then post a line

to those at home.


A Mother waits

for all those lines

when Sun and shade

and bright green blades

then back again.


Autumns shades

she watches as

green ivy grows

while wisps of clouds

high so high

call it cirrus in the sky.


Then a wind blown seed

become upright

from the earth.

So earth is higher,

rounder now,

then bright green blades

soon to be a golfers turf.


Leaves of rusty red

then spider webby,

when they're dead,

are autumn clothes,

worth only sacks

to compost.


Then ivy grows

quite happily,

and rapidly it spreads,

both left and right with all

it's strength.


In sun and shade

that's home for lizards secrets

as the bats at night

scream loud delight.


The boat is in,

the sailor

posts his loving card

off home.

To sweet Ma ma.

A Post-man at work


Love from the outside

lying in a box.


Three times daily

he went to her door.

He did his bit

in delivering love.

Three small cards

arrived every day


'Good Morning,

Mother,

we've just sailed away

a very rough sea!

respect from me

loving son Shay.'


'Hello Ma,

I'm far away

in Gibralter.

Raining today,

love from Walter'


'Morning Ma,

in sunny Spain,

docking on monday,

love from Kane'.

That was supposed to read, "Awesomely beautiful jandee." Phones continuously correct me even though I may not need correction (like loving spouses).
