Christmas

beetles rattle in the grass
like radio static, until
their wings spring open
& rust slowly in the sun

**********

Much love to you all for the festive season and thank you to everyone who has supported this blog over the last three years… here’s to a creatively sparkling 2012.

  1. Have a wonderful first Christmas with the new addtion to your family…I look forward to another year of reading your poetry…Cheers!

  2. I would like to rust slowly in the sun; there are worse fates than that incredible image. Happy Christmas to you and yours! Thanks for the gift of your wonderful blog which I enjoy year round!

  3. ha – rusting slowly in the sun sounds nice…esp. when it is madly cold like over here at the moment… hope you have a wonderful holiday season and yes – looking forward to another poetic year

  4. Love the way you run the title into the poem – haha – good stuff. Hope Christmas went off with a bang for you and yours and that you had time to sit down and eat (ie., that the baby slept while you ate – haha) or that you had enough family and friends to do the baby shuffle or pass the baby while Mum and Dad got to eat. Hope 2012 is a good one too Graham.
