June 30

Each morning 
the same people walking 
in the same place 
We never used to see them 
"New to the area", I suggest 
"or their car isn't working", my daughter offers.

June 26

Birds flutter around 
continuing in circles 
small moments expand 

Saturday, June 25, 2011

June 25

small white stars 
congregate in bunches 
on the greenery

June 24

Table and two chairs
Neatly arranged out the front
Does anyone ever sit there?

June 22

Gentle chatter 
I can't make out the words 
but it sounds happy 

Tuesday, June 21, 2011

June 21

Trees line up 
down the middle of the road 
with their arms up 
shouting "Hooray!"

June 20

The mood is dull and flat 
THe grumpiness of the wind 
suddenly builds

June 19

I notice the noise first 
then the colour 

The brightly coloured parrot 
Too heavy for the branch 
Sways like a huge pendulum

June 18

Tree wears a stunning necklace 
Bright orange beads 
Sparkle in the sunlight

June 14

I notice 
the dog is still barking 
when the car noise fades

June 13

in an effort to arrive on time 
I notice so many small stones 
waving from the side of the road 

I don't have time to slow down now

June 12

Elusive piece of clothing 

Check the line outside 
Peruse hanging clothes inside 
Rummage through drawers and basket 
Finally find it 
Tangled in the washing machine

June 11

Morning walk conversation 

"Can you set the rooster for a certain time?"

June 10

Straight from the water 
the play sand is dry 
Repeated again and again 
just to check

June 9


tiny dot of red 
on an expanse of green 
lonely or free?

June 8

sudden rain
disperses everyone 
it is quiet outside 
except for loud water 
streaming down 

Tuesday, June 7, 2011

June 7

After the rain 

the one puddle 
seems magnetised 
attracting toddlers

June 6

I hear singing 
sweet sounds 
twirl their way inside  

That tree is her happy place 

I remember 
I had a tree like that

June 4

Good morning Saturday 

A silent and still cat on my lap 
A symphony of cars and birds outside
