billowing colour ...
the swish of her dress
at dawn


 

unfurling
within this stillness
summer clouds


 

wedding cups ...
within each one
the other


 

sixty-one summers ...
the stain of blackberries
his offering


 

summer's end ...
juice of an elephant heart
drips from her lips


 

cricket season -
pale apparitions
in the sun


 

cicadas
grind away the silence ...
ripples on the pond


 

tidal debris --
the ebb and flow
of words


 

bowing down
an agapanthus bloom ...
summer fullness


 

ancient tree ...
within the shadows
an apple rots


 

rock pool ...
the old man waits
on his own


 

Waitangi Day ...
kauris grow past oaks
in silence


 

summer heat -
active directory
on a break


 

summer garden ...
my nose wrinkles
in the pond


 

cicada
your ascent into song
all one imagines


 

hui tanguru
surf laps my midriff
beyond my return


 

boiling mud ...
even rocks may be
renewed


 

blemished moon
shining on the wrinkles
of the sea


 

the high price
of a cicada's silence -
summer sale


 

overkill -
possum introductions
to a virgin land
