slash pine favourite

their mournful cry

rings out

across the sky

graceful glide style

jet black

stops to eat awhile

a slash pine favourite


tick tock to next year

tick tock to midnight

it’s time to reflect

on what we have done

or chose to neglect

cleaning the light bulb

we think up big plans

even jot them down

of the strides we will make

to create our renown


midnight now strikes

fireworks burst bright

the year just gone

fades to black and white

the cottage at black mountain

 Birds, trees, mountain air.

Peace the cottage ambience
