snail (2) 


yesterday my words were kind 
last night you chomped my precious basil

snail

Hiding under leaves
Beautiful silvery trails
Labelled as a pest

The assembling of an IKEA purchase 


Enjoyment 
Challenge 
Frustration 
Challenge 
Enjoyment 
Satisfaction

Noise
Big noise
Parrots in the tree
Can't see them
but I know they are there

Web vibration 


Sorry Mrs Spider 
I needed to put the bin out

Hopefulness 
is followed by excitement 
and then delight 


A treasure 
in my letter box

The crow squawked
The boy looked up
noticed the same small stone
that I did

Just after I press post 
Google ads on Blogger 
make me laugh 
sometimes

After the weekend 
Smiling faces 
Happy to see each other again

Here, today 
it feels like 
the beginning of Spring 


It's not

One photo 
and I start to devise 
my own story 
of what happens there

another butterfly 


orange floats past 
then stops to rest 


I watch
the rhythm of wings

butterfly 


Suddenly 
a burst of orange 
flutters past

In the saucepan 


shades of soft jelly 
tapioca bubbles
art popping around

'Mum 
Get up 
You have to see the sunrise' 


This morning smells so beautiful 
She notices too 


'I love the smell of the sun 
just over the water'

The screech is so loud 
continues so long 
I can hardly believe 
it really is a bird

March 11

Sports Day

Explosion of colour
and noise
Determination
and a few tears

challenge 


So much to ponder 
Do I act the way I say I do? 
Do I believe what I say I believe? 


I keep going

snails 


stretched and peering out 
from under shell protection 
post rain visitors

The pink flowers next door 
now look like 
deflated balloons

March 6

The sounds of the birds are so sharp
The blue of the sky so vibrant.

The graffitied wall
and the constant hum of the bus
seem out of place

March 5

Just outside the kitchen window 
Light glitters through the leaves

March 4

Watering can in hand 
My eyes follow trails of water 
I watch drops falling off leaves 
I am cheered a little

March 3

Arranged neatly in pairs 
the walkers 
traverse the neighbourbood
