Stories / poems from ‘Ana Thema’ – Alan Howard: 7

from ‘Day To-Day Fragments’



Returning here I find
   dead leaves of the years
piled up against a second entrance.

………………

Catwalking hodman –
   on his ascending trapeze
shoulders house upon house.

………………


Menacing the sky –
   a bee buzzes
deep in in business.

………………


Gathered by
   Salvation Hall –
Grannies, all.

………………


A golden leaf –
   another leaf, falling,
such a great tree laid bare.
