For Sunday Whirl: Inky, Wet, Scarlet, Oiled, Feathery, Sway, Sparks, Close, Hole, Shoots, Doubt, Plot.


Inky, wet, scarlet fluid gets you well oiled.
You're feeling feathery light as you roll and sway.
This sparks a close encounter with a hole in the road that shoots out in front of you.
Without doubt you've lost the plot...!

For Sunday Whirl


Wind from south is fierce enough
Keeps gusting as she cries out...
She'll train her bitter curses
On spring's untested filters
...And have our heads in pieces

For Sunday Whirl: If, Dreamed, Vision, Nestled, Heart, Years, Persuaded, Stay, Tribute, Period, Floor, Degrees, Space.


If she'd dreamed at all
That vision would have nestled
In her heart for years

Persuaded to stay
She paid tribute to her man
For a period

Life on the top floor
Was killing her by degrees
Now she's lost in space

For Sunday Whirl: Shadow, Bread, Salt, Sense, Breath, Sends, Head, Gravity, Plans, Thread, Shoes, Landscape.


You think...

Without a shadow of doubt
Baking bread to earn your salt
Makes perfect sense...

But does it...?

Deep breath...

Have a second thought...

This sends signals to your head...

Then you think...

Blame gravity for the way
In which even best laid plans
Fall down hard and lose their thread...

Now you think...

No shoes required to walk this landscape...!
