autumn gingko
her notebook full
of stick figures

piled sticks
the waterhen lowers
its white belly

our older dog
beside the unlit fire –
hint of winter

Blue Mountains
a king parrot dives
into the mist

a friend dying
another circuit
of the garden

hovering
over the garden gnome –
a butterfly

memorial park
another frangipani
joins the fallen

cold buffet
the salads greener
on others plates

moths hover
over the drinks dispenser –
sultry night

ikebana
a cobweb links man
to heaven

round table
various sons discuss
her empty house

the teal
preens wet feathers –
a streak of blue

farewell …
on the train window
a smiley face

sushi restaurant –
the while-faced heron
settles on mudflats

passing train –
magnolia petals
litter the churchyard

heatwave
he feeds his fish
ice cubes

Asian food market
a confusion
of spicy smells

Autumnal dusk
a fading light
in his workshop

late Autumn
a lone elm leaf
hanging on

a corn field
ripening gold
Autumn begins
