Some stones from the week

a pair of geese fly over the school
calling as they go
in the space above their wings
a break in the clouds
circle of blue sky


passing a bush of vermillion
pausing to look
not berries but flowers


last night
Jake unzipped his starry pyjamas
and stepped out of them
then lay down and placed
the soles of his feet
on his cheeks
then got up and danced
in circles round the table
looking up as he did so
his face watching
for my smile

What a lovely pair of smiles.
