August 31

strong fan of green blades 
layered softness droops forward 
curls of cellophane 
closed buds never to open 
tired floral arrangement

August 30

colour sprinkled 
on the tops of trees 
brightening the day

August 29


new faces 
new names
new spaces 
at the end of the day 
so tired

August 28

Following a search for shadows, 
I am left with 
muddy shoelaces, 
damp bottom of jean legs 
and beautiful photographs. 

(photos can be seen here)

spotty silver trails 
the evidence 
of last night's snail adventures

sweet soundtrack 
from the trees above 
shadow dances across bitumen

My garden today 
A little tangled in parts 
Many plants grow strong 
Elsewhere are the bare patches 
life is about to begin

Shadows jiggle 
Pegs lay broken 
Underneath the washing line

August 21

darkness flies down 
claws scrape on fence 
heavy head twitches  
this sudden show 
a question mark

call for attention 

that bird is a whistle

Tendrils twist around
Bottlebrush peers between
Parallel poles of fence

So many small stones 
today I can't separate them 
can't polish one a little more than others 
Too many and yet none

Time for sleep 

In the semi darkness 
The pink flowers 
make a front yard pillow

small objects scattered near 
like tiny smiles 
holding memories 
of previous days

On Saturday 

A car park overflows 
happy noise drifts from the playground 
and colour floats in the air

Rubbish collection day 

Bare feet on cold cement  
A line of bins wait 
the last soon in place

Diagonal from my front door 
regardless of background colour 
the tree with the twisted branches 
pulls my attention 
every day

With the blend of sunshine and rain 
Leaves are glittering 
this morning

August 7

Plastic spoon scraping icy cordial 

A bird laughing? 
Someone brushing their teeth? 
I couldn't work out 
what the noise was.

Through the screen 
I watch shadowy branches 
dancing in time 
to meditation music

Four wheel drive 
bottom right corner 
"Remember to breathe" 
strategically placed

Diagnosis: Kylie 

Birthday celebration 
My mum talks of her pregnancy 
We laugh together

Tangles of branches
Bright orange background
Simply beautiful
