Calling for a mate

Calling for a mate
from a drain facing the park
the frog croaks loudly

Identical old blokes

Identical old blokes
tending to suburban lawns
white beards and track pants

Dried wattle blossom

Dried wattle blossom
sprinkled on my drying clothes
yellow polka dots

Woken too early

Woken too early
foggy brain won’t accept sleep
day becomes a dream

To suffer for art?

To suffer for art?
Spiny burr v spineless bum.
Ends with wimped out bum.

Paddocks dressed yellow

Paddocks dressed yellow
populated by gum trees
Riverina spring

Buried in pine trunk

Buried in pine trunk
shy echidna hides their snout
needles pointing out

This sponge in the sun

This sponge in the sun
moss growing on arid soil
cryptogamic crust
