desert
in my shoe
a grain of sand

dusk
after the heat of the day
a sigh

rust
on the bench
a century of tools

empty hayshed
old harvester
collects cobwebs

clouds
swell and gather
the smell of rain

hibiscus
flower unfurls
unbuttoning her blouse

camp oven-
above the trees
splintered moon

Telegraph Hill-
a line of boabs
lead away

Mistake Creek
one lane bridge
dismantled

passing Mabel Downs
the smell of ash
returns

fenced
the ancient well
dry

moon shine
under the pergola
grape juice in plastic cups
