winter’s morning
arthritic hands
prune heritage roses

museum
my grandson discovers
the dinosaur bones

winter day
aerating the lawn
ground frog croaks

cease fire
from the rubble
a wall flower shoots

scar through trees
hard edged road
winds

rain –
her rapid chatter
in my ear

raindrops
explode on pavement
joining the dots

polka dot dress
ladybird turns on the rim
of an empty glass

looking south
sun on my back
storm clouds gather

resting in sun
convalescing
garden in bloom

Of rain
a meditation
channelling green.

the milkman’s daughter
marries beneath herself ­–
mock cream

heron
a stone shadow
in a bank of mist

peony petals
scattered on floor boards
Dali’s melting watches

drifting mist
wattle blossom
lights a window

winters’ morning
black rags hang on a clothes line
scavenger birds

a summer storm
bends the willows
bees swarm

a drop of dew on a furled leaf
toy boat floats on the pond
