May 30

Only a few metres apart 
Yet the spaces feel so different

May 28

Saturday afternoon 

constant growl 
of the washing machine 
splodges of laughter 
from the teenager's room

May 27

The ceiling is full of holes 
I imagine a game of dots-and-boxes

Upturned flower 

While the birds chatter 
X marks the spot 
in beautiful pink

Optometrist appointment 

"Any questions?" 
"Where can I get a pair of those funky glasses?"

Laughter eases the tension in the room

May 24

A light sprinkling 
Heads bowed 
Bodies hunched  
Umbrellas not necessary

May 23

On the footpath  
leaves lay like bowls 
wait for water

Our tree and the neighbour's tree 

leaves on one side 
leaves on the top

May 19

Tasks that once consumed hours and more 
of my thoughts and actions 
Simply moments in my day 
Today I feel so proud

May 18

twirl in the breeze 
wind and rain stolen colour 
still beautiful

May 17

Neatly placed 
at the base of the tree 
The baby's hat 
awaits its owner's return

I wondered what the new plants were 
Two days later 
remember I planted some Hollyhock seeds 

Confirmed by a Google search

question mark on the wall

May 13


last week 
someone said the automatic doors 
sound like waves 
I noticed they do

May 11

The sound of the rain 
gradually builds 
takes over the beeping of the trucks

May 10

Walking home in the rain 

Soggy, clinging clothes 
heavier with each step

Birdsong painting 

If the sounds of the birds were painted today 
There would be big blobs of paint 
thin trails of evenly spaced dots

May 6


he is curled on my lap 
I don't sit for long 
he seems disappointed

May 2

Yellow, brown and green 
Curled leaves in the alleyway 
One looks like a banana

May 1

Sparkly circles of water 
on leaves and grass 
telling the tale 
of earlier light rain
