Jellybean

 There's a Jellybean 

stranded at the top of the stairs,

Its blue beany body

is covered in hairs,


and it's bean there for days,

just gathering dust,

and people walk by

with a look of disgust,


so I pick the bean up

and walk to the bin,

but I change my mind 

before I throw it in,


you see, the bin was full -

and I do hate to waste,

so I chewed the bean up

and what a wonderful taste!

Night Music

I saw sounds at night

altering the shapes of trees


tickling shadows

dancing on an owl's tongue,


I saw sounds skipping 

from door to door,


rattling the letterbox,

slipping into dreams,


I saw a gentle drumbeat 

chase a prancing fox,


amongst a tiny applause

of closing flowers.
