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?
