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

fast train –

bush walk

surrounded by bird song

cyclist whistles past

clouds drift by

gibbous moon

 

windswept

she sweeps leaves

her hair blown

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

through pools of mud
