November 30

A regular beat of squeaks 
From tree to tree 
Two birds fly back and forth

November 26

Another year, another pageant 

not even born one year ago 
wave from the floats 
like they've always known how

November 25

I wish I had my camera 

the pink and grey of galahs 
on twisted branches 
and a backdrop of gloomy clouds

November 23


Watching and listening to the waves 
I notice the brightly coloured paint spray bottle 
and then a rat climbs out from under the flowers 
twitches its nose and gently nods its head 
We watch each other for a while  
then it trots across the pavement towards the road

November 21

A ragged stem 
Bright, sparkling strawberry gone! 
Breakfast for a bird?

November 19

Where the zucchini seedling was yesterday 
A tiny dark green circle 
level with the ground 
and surrounded by silver trails

November 18


The black-spotted orange dot 
crawls across the curly green leaves

November 15

Broad beans 

I pop beans out 
from cushioned pods 
A pleasure akin 
to the bursting 
of bubble-wrap bubbles

November 14

A rustle in the dryness 
and the lines of grey 
twice the slater size I am used to 
crawl over the crunchy leaves

November 13

Thunder and gloom 
minus shadows
Water spots 
and then the sun 
bathes all in playful light

November 12

"Maths Friendly. Reading Friendly." 
A fitting sign for a school.

November 11

Organized chaos of twigs and fluff
Bird's nest
Lays empty on the ground

November 10

clothes strewn across the yard 
the only sign 
of last night's heavy winds

November 9

The twisted bare tree branches 
by the gloomy sky

November 8

I walk across the back lawn 
careful not to crunch any snails 

In the garden patch 
the new zucchini plants are GONE!

November 7

Passionfruit on the right
Bananas on the left 
The alleyway near home

November 6

Separate from the others 
The seagull hobbles 
begging for food

November 5


a bright splash of red 
on the dark green parsley

November 4

An expanse of flat blue water 
Dogs bound along the sand 
Strangers smile at each other

November 1

A whirlwind being
my daughter's friend 
runs past  

"A pinch and a punch 
for the first day of the month" 

Ah yes, It's November already
