BIG MAC - 2013

i did not get sucked-in to Christmas-Day Dietary-Excesses this year. In fact, y'day was the first day of my intended MacDougall(BIG MAC)-inspired New-Year's-Day-Diet. Don't worry, no humans, other than myself, were harmed by this decision! : one of the perks of living a near hermit-like existence!

i gave away the mozarella and the feta cheeses. i gave away the Indian pakoras, bhajis and samosas. And i gave away the too-rich "homoss", even tho' it was organic. i felt lighter and healthier at one fell stroke.

So, once again, after a two-month hiatus, i return to a highly acceptable, almost 100%, plant-based, low-fat, whole-foods diet. Am allowing for a little vegan irreverence. Tho whenever i do stray, it is never very far.

And remember - DISEASES rarely run in families..DIETS do!!! Treat the family to a "BIG MAC" diet in 2013!!! Eat greens & grains, salads & vegetables, fruits & seeds. Any other vegan food should be of condiment proportions.…

5 POEMS - JANUARY 2005

1.
tearing down road
at break-neck speed
a blackbird

2.
must be getting old
even in dream
couldn't stiffen
for girl

3.
starlings gathered
on railway-sidings
dried grass-seeds

4.
weathered garden-shed
looks so right
no need to paint anew

5.
sitting zazen
mouth waters
thoughts of smoked tofu

(These poems were first seen on Kris Hemensley's "poetry & ideas" blog - posted on August 26, 2007. i have now slightly revised them. "weathered garden shed" was also published by Phyllis Walsh, in her magazine, "Hummingbird")

SOME LINES

 FINE LINES  about face & mouth  softest outline of heart & belly & breast & lips that smile a welcome to that kiss all moulded by the hand that writes of this. * (Weymouth - 11/12/11)

2 girls kiss good-bye @ Bridport bus-stop hearts stop briefly for 2 kisses 1 with lips to nose 1 with lips to chin face-to-face Mahakashyapa @ Vulture Peak i would twirl a flower for french kisses in the street * (Bridport,Dorset -10/December/2011) *

AFTER PREVERT

Our Father who art in Heaven Stay there and we'll stay here on earth in WEYMOUTH which is so pretty in the early morning walking past NOAH'S ARK and THE PALM HOUSE by RADIPOLE LAKE with its swans, coots, mallards and seagulls gathering themselves   for a later commotion   as i pass. & with its small avenue of trees here surely the left-bank of The Seine  is rivalled? why seek for anywhere else? Manhattan's or Hong-Kong's skyscrapers not as high as i feel right now even with no  rye sourdough at THE PHOENIX BAKERY as yet "See ya later, man"  says Aidan Chapman  as his all-night stint  draws to a close &   it's saturday morning  the usual shop-traders  have yet to make an appearance. But i head for THE SWAN by the TOWN BRIDGE  where late-night revellers  are having fried breakfasts & cappucino  & i wait an age to be served    double tomato juice & tabasco while the coffee machine  gathers enough heat & steam &  the bar staff take their time. But i feel at home here

LES BICHES for Robin H.

2 young & their doe-eyed mother blonde & honey-grey pony-tails in the breeze almost as wild as the mustangs @ Cattistock manes like Disney animations falling to the ground magical creatures LES BICHES! LES BICHES! Near the traffic-lights waiting for a bus one waits and waits as if for a life-time then they come together LES BICHES! LES BICHES! Pony-tails in the breeze. *  (Weymouth - 2010/2012) * 

THE FOLLOWING MORNING

1.
small birdsongs
start with
the heart

2.
reflection
of something
beyond the eyes

3.
streaming somewhere
like blood
maybe

4.
sun
daubs cheeks
dabs at shoulders

5.
pervasive sounds
follow
first thoughts

6.
surprised
by tears
yet elated
