~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

fast asleep
in a bed of snapdragons –
her old dog

mercury lights
in the shunting yard –
steady drizzle

whistling
in the bamboo grove
August wind

sun in the west
between us
not a word

derelict farm
a tractor tyre swings
from the oak

pink dawn
waiting for her
to wake

first wattle–
taking the steps
two at a time

tomato stall
her right thumb
stained green

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

hum of blowflies
blood from the kangaroo’s ear
yet to dry

Remembrance Day
Grandpa in white singlet
with medals

rust and mint –
the watertank leaks

grass blade and paper –
both cut

city skyline
angular cranes swing
gum trees sway

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

siren wails
closer and closer
a mother worries

peaches and cream –
your youthful face
everywhere I look

tall gum trees
at my feet
a golden skink

bright sun
temple steps
many shoes

wintry day
in the garden
the Japonica blooms

in the wake
of the pelican
no fish

Mardi May

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

summer sky
exquisitely blue
a fairy-wren

summer haze
an eagle circles
a rabbit trembles

in the darkness
a single candle
Victoria Cross

leaves blow
soccer balls roll
– autumn park
