a blue-green shimmer
on the windowsill
dead fly

yellow ring-neck parrot

silent
the first leaf fall
morning

heron poised
its rippled likeness
the only movement

side by side
footprints on the foreshore
threads in a rug

propped
against tomorrow
40W
nothing as cool
as the other side
of the pillow

craggy hands
the dark horizon
trees

unbroken chain
rope pulling no weight
black
caterpillars

preening ducks
lift their wings –
a flash of green

thud
fruit falls
from the lemon tree

narrow inlet –
casuarina needles
caught in the ripples

shark spotting plane
the sand crab
digs deep

blueberry ash
a new shoot unfurls
over blackened ground

weathered seat…
wrapped in the greenness
of palm fronds

first rain
after the fire …
frogs calling
