September 30

thin white sparkling curve 
the moon is a smile 
without eyes

September 29

Frozen pizza 


I take the box at the front 
Four more tumble to the floor 
Like dominoes

September 28

lost keys 


From busy calm to panic 
in a matter of seconds

September 25

Spider web 


Pinks and purples shimmer 
along thin threads 
A lifeless fly 
bobs up and down

September 24

Peas, zucchini...oh and some beans 


A girl, aged about seven 
knowingly chatters to herself 
A tantrum slowly builds 
when told she can't buy 
all that she wants

September 23

laughter breaks the tension 
tiny sparks tumble 
through the air

September 22

people I don't know
the same time every day 
routines intersect

guinea pig 


Up and down 
Up and down 
through the apple 
her little teeth

September 20

A lone seagull stands 
on the corner of the building 
A few feathers dance with the wind

September 19

Gloomy darkness on my drive home 
It feels later than it is 
Safe and warm inside 
I listen to the roar of the rain

September 18

warm sun  
songs and chatter from birds 
Bunnings car park full

Noticing


Were the trees so colourful 
before I wrote small stones?

Happy meal 


One small blue coloured toy 
and I remember excitement 
stops at the service station 
adding to my smurf collection 
and many hours of play

September 14

Festival of music choir 


magical voices 
colour filled stage 
nervous, excitement filled air 
audience members scan the sea of faces 
to locate their special one

September 13

darkest black 
shining feathers 
the crow peruses the driveway

Parsley and silverbeet 
covered in white sprinkles 
peach blossom confetti

September 8

In the middle of the road
eating a doughnut 
the magpie stays 
until the last possible moment

September 7

Thick, chunky leaves 
The seedlings have doubled in size 
overnight 

Tuesday, September 6, 2011

September 6

The rain stops 
almost as quickly as it started 
The sun is shining again

September 5

Orange-yellow leaves are shimmering 
in the dimming light 
The tree leans slightly to the right

September 1

Suddenly 
there are light green leaves 
as well as blossom 
they sparkle in the sunlight
