Haiku from a Picture: ‘Lights’

Catherine of Aragon’s tomb in Peterborough Cathedral, England.

Lights still shine for you
For others memories fade
Life beyond the grave

Candles flickering
The cat loves the crackling fire
Winter benefits

New Poem ‘Morning List’

Morning List

Aromas of snuffed out candles
A new bar of soap
The fix of fresh black coffee
A warm fruit teacake
smothered in melting butter

First sight and smell
of the salty sea
