among the headstones
whispering tourists
shadows in snow

sacred bamboo
grandfather’s cottage locked
broken window

long summer
the raven’s cry
lingers

undergarment
another stain on her skin

pussy willow
on the front steps
a sleeping cat

an empty bowl
neighbour’s lemon tree
bent with fruit

kite-surfers
flying over waves
scudding clouds

river foreshore
moored yachts bob
children swing

he looked to his god
who looked to his god
and so on …

the blooms of spring
faltering
under the summer sun

thwack thwack thwack
gravity defied
a swan takes off

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

water drops
stroked by sunlight
tiny rainbows born

white gums
outstretched arms
kookaburras laugh

morning mist
curves around fence posts
soft green

seed pearls on
naked skin
sea bath at dawn

stars dance–
in sunlight
all dust is cosmic

from your cream throat
a spice bouquet
frangipani

state elections
a swallow repairs
its mud nest

country church—
blackberries under
a listing angel

sanctuary
the red kangaroo’s
eyelashes

red grevillea
the on-going squabble
of lorikeets

picking
birdseye chillies—
four days since she left

a field of silence
the circling kite

bush tucker
opting for anzac biscuits
and billy tea

melting moments…
tea break beside
the rapids

manacled indoors
washing yesterday’s dishes
watching magpies sing

photograph
a reminder of what is gone
the smile on your face

light through venetians
shadows cast across floor
imprisoned

riding the white line
motorcyclist weaves
stitches slow traffic

farming—
tall turbines

gather sea breezes

caught in murano glass
grand canal water colours
liquid light
