from deep within
the rooster crows ---
eye glinting

 

in this blue
the scalloped flight
of one swallow

 

wind blows a glimpse of ducklings through reeds

 


 

pregnant again
the fluttering of moths
against the window

(pregnant again was the 2002 Winner of the prestigious UK Seashells Award)

 

morning crispness
lingering into noon
this autumn day

 

fox slinks into pampas grass plume trembling

 


 

   unable to sleep
i knead the dry side
     of the pillow

 

  after you're gone
the jacaranda's blue
    lies beneath it

 

white faced heron slumps in heat of the wetlands

 


 

   my youth has gone
a solitary crow circles
     adding his lament

 

  breakfasting in
the bed still
    warm from night

 

violin concerto outside a butcher bird goes solo

 


   fetching firewood
i open the door
     to moonlight

 

  room facing west
the clock's pendulum quickens
    the sunset's blaze

 

muzzle of the drinking cow glides across still water

 


 

   a little liquid
in the tea cup gathers in
     the winter light

 

  night traffic lights
the spring puddle changes
    from red to green glow

 

a churr of cicada calls thickens the fading light

 


 

   stationary bus
talking we visit places
     within each other

 

  cold mountain
evening air creeps from
    beneath its shadow

 

cold morning Chopin assaults the ears
