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

early morning sunlight
on the nativity
a blessing

epiphylum flowers
perfume our night
hang limp this morning

flowers to her
cherished on each petal
a heart

into port
ship barely raises a ripple
pelican glides by

shadows
criss-cross the ground
a net cast

Sumo serves my lunch,
still panting from hard practice;
shadow fills my plate.

spring rains
a chorus of frogs

the sea breeze
flattens bushes
ocean swells

Strolling past sunflowers
at eight months
now she accepts their nods.

Garden sundial
the full moon
faintly timed.

In the mirror
her private tattoos
between them.

primulas-
a bee chooses its colour

first light
between the cabins
breakers off shore

In tonight’s sky –
an ochre sun
and a crisp white moon.

dewdrops glisten
green marble steps
wet socks
