November

Cul de Sac

Stuck in a holding pattern

Like a plane over Gatwick

Waiting to land

Waiting to take off

 

Listening to music as I paint

I notice all the music is sad

Little Green

Telegraph Road

 

Never liked November

It always seems so unreasonable of me to hate bonfire night and fireworks

Standing outside in cold damp leaf-strewn spaces

 

It was okay when it was just my Dad setting off a catherine wheel against the shed

Because everything was always alright

With my beautiful Dad

Who died in November 95

At only 55

 

Such a beautiful man

Handsome, tall, musical, adventurous, funny, mercurial,

He was sui generis

A rare soul
