lengthening shadows —
through the paschal mysteries
an earthbound seedwing


on tiptoes
the music of the spheres
in her giggle


hermit crab
a child on the rocks
hugs herself


 

fallen house
a mayfly drifts by
on its ripple


 

milky way
a snail shell spirals
within me


 

autumn rain
the colour splashing
from her steps


 

autumn rain
the last of my childhood drips
from a magnolia


 

a tuatara
stares into the other side
of nothing


 

incoming tide
the meaning of these words
parts from them


 

ah, so soon!
yesterday falling
about me


greying days —
am I flowing along with
the river's flow?
