reaching for her shawl
the long shadows
of the pines

year’s end
crossing the stone bridge
into shadow

snowfall
the dark mouths of seals
surfacing

winter fog
the old gate on
the top field

butterfly pupae
the bamboo forest
creaking

love note
another fold
in my origami

my son’s exams
the frog beneath his window
silent

fan palms
everyone cranes to see
the cassowary

onion field —
cutworms deepen
the farmer’s furrow

baseball season —
the grass on my lawn
grows another inch

blue fin tuna —
a rusting can returns
to the shore

peach blossoms —
the hearse heavier
by a petal

wind chimes –
just long enough
to name a tune

peeling boiled eggs
the cracked ceramic glaze
of nan’s serving plate

she brings me
a bag of broad beans
and one haiku

valentine’s day
at the zoo
visitors two by two

raindrops cling
from the flying fox —
summer camp

raven’s caw
the misery she brings
into my life

Christmas lunch —
after the presents we continue
our argument
