hunger
the bone gnawed
all day

weeping willow
strands of hair
hide her tears

cracked window
two sides to a view

raindrops all day
stones on my roof

tea garden –
we pluck out two leaves
worth of memories

dwindling lake –
an egret turns her gaze
to the sky

distant howl –
the night closes in
tree by tree,

spring evening
inked on her ankle
cherry blossoms

mountain road –
we drive past the sun
on hairpin bends

bush walk
surrounded by bird song
cyclist whistles past

blue sky
clouds drift by
gibbous moon

windswept
she sweeps leaves
her hair blown

courting couple
pink and grey galahs
step in tandem

railway mosque –
a flash of blue
a kingfisher takes off

neck deep in wheat fields
peacocks pick their way
