Prague Sonata

turmeric & ginger

copper early dusk

along the Vltava

faded rose moon

reluctantly tendrils across

ashened stars

autumn cicada

murmur & chant

cluttered linden grove

ancient medlar

merely staging

poetic lament

amongst  branches

longing  nightingale

I remember sky

My Coloring Book

always a dreamer

coloring outside the lines

impressionist blurs

countries & cities

imagination soared

Paris nestled

upon the banks

of the Nile

These poems are from Sykes’ forthcoming book Another Country.
