goodnight

sweet dreams to the little robin
perched on the fence at Sea Side
fly away small one
and nest in peace

Monday in Victoria

bay leaves
fig tree
hydrangea
grapefruit
lemons
green peppers
thyme
plums
island excursions
eclipsing with friends
dear dear friends
lovely light
lighting the world

hazy afternoon

pulling up overgrown grasses
trimming the hedge
weeding under a filtered sky
when suddenly above
a blanketed passing of crows
seldom so many seen together in the city
here and gone
like this summer day

sweet dreams

a few whiffles and snores
feline spooning
low whirls from the fan
you two set off before me
a few more whiffles
a few more snores
go on ahead
i'll catch up soon and meet you both
in the land of nod

seeps

two three pails of water
filtered through cedar
down from above
anenomes planted maybe too deep
flashy and showy up top
not so much sonar
down below
garlic about to give up
what is or wasn't was
cloves
bulbs
and all things candescent

sunday

after winds sheeting rain
lightning and hail
all is soft and quiet
a little breeze on the mountain ash
pipping calls of a bluejay
the slowness of a still day
in a summer passing by
too quickly
