Paint it green.

This series of photos is bursting with wonderful ideas about how we can make our urban spaces green and still leave some countryside for the wildlife. I particularly liked the car spaces with a level for plants, food and oxygen.

With imagination we can find space for us all to thrive.


For Mum.

For Kathleen 1929 –  31st January 2019.



Snow at the end of winter

High heaped, brittle,

Chaffinches fiddling for grain

In stunted grass.

And then –

Flight –

Strong, short wings,

A sound of flight

A movement of the air

A flash of complicated colour.

Blue, blue, bright sky

A flat,  simple palette of love

Lightens their escape.
