a homeless man 
wearing a soiled coat
with shiny coins 
in a dirty hat
on a clean pavement

early morning traffic lights
in the passenger seat 
sparrow song

Thursday, August 18, 2016

A brisk wind blows in the darkness of the morning – the hum of commuting traffic competes with the gentle rhythm of waves lapping the foreshore – lights in windows of awakening houses on the surrounding hills of the city ignite slowly – flickering in the silhouette of waving trees – and slowly in the coldness of the harbour’s shadows windows move – gliding out from the city hills into the blackness of the unseen harbour Heads –

the channel ferry's lights
escape the city's glow
this winter morning

morning fog
at the corner
a streetlamp’s aura

Tuesday, August 16, 2016

outdoor café
a pigeon pecks at crumbs
a cigarette butt

Monday, August 15, 2016

in the shade
a wind chime hangs silent
– sparrows

Sunday, August 14, 2016

morning frost
a blackbird hops

Saturday, August 13, 2016

early morning
across the highway barrier
headlights joust

Friday, August 12, 2016

morning silence
beyond the fog –

Thursday, August 11, 2016

rain on my roof
in the conifer
a starling sings

Wednesday, August 10, 2016

late morning –
a neighbour's light
through winter trees

Tuesday, August 9, 2016

no wind –
clouds cap
snow-capped hills

Monday, August 8, 2016

early morning
delivery trucks hazard lights –

Sunday, August 7, 2016

low tide –
a black swan
stands tall

Saturday, August 6, 2016

cold rain
under a parked car
a starling shakes its head

Friday, August 5, 2016

a cold wind
sparrows –
fly silent

Thursday, August 4, 2016

after the funeral
a cold wind
sweeps the courtyard

Wednesday, August 3, 2016

swollen river
a gull lands
on a drying rock

Tuesday, August 2, 2016

on the back of a truck,
workmen dump building debris,
haphazardly –
outside the art gallery

Monday, August 1, 2016

torrential rain
the Peace Lilly
stays calm
