New potatoes

Buried in darkness,
but umbilically linked
to a mother husk,

seven pearly potatoes
must surrender to the spade.


Found objects

Watch how willow twigs,
translucent feathers,
lichen, fine hairs are woven

into model coracles
harboured high up in a tree.


Tattered petticoat
slips off in the wind
leaving a dark skeleton.




 Pat Farrington has had poems published in Orbis, The Reader and The South, and in Haiku Quarterly.
