closing the gate
bones left to whiten
in the sun

you must be deaf
to keep singing that way|
cicada

lilies
on her grave
more fragrant

fig tree
bares its limbs
strip show

autumn rain
vine leaves
rusting

leaf falls
cushioned
hand to hand

night
listening to the wind ­–
gossip over the fence

duet –
frog and cricket
in the house

seagull
on the wharf
braced against the wind

violets climb the rim
meet the finest crack
her Royal Dalton cup

trail of ants
bumper to bumper
rush hour

under paperbark tree
dishevelled tramp

dawn
one street light
still flickers

breakers –
the curve of earth
outlined

still water
the bridge doubles

jasmine scent
through my bedroom window
her perfume in the sheets

the neighbours
putting rubbish in my bin
should I be envious

Australian made
even the defects
are patriotic

a church
next to a pub
worshippers gather
