Without this photo

Without this photo
could I be sure to have seen
the colours of dawn

Blank wall reveals growth

Blank wall reveals growth
floodlights are outpacing trees
the stars are outshined

What price do we pay

What price do we pay
for seeing buildings at night
without the starlight

Stirred early morning

Stirred early morning
unsettled by fleeting thoughts
around the edges

My grandfather said

My grandfather said:
"Three moves is good as a fire."
What can I carry?

Sharpening their beaks

Sharpening their beaks
sitting on an antenna
two crows wait for dawn

We've peeled back petals

We've peeled back petals
our pollination bore fruits
light falls between us

Distant television

Distant television
blinking from light years away
twinkling star tonight

Summer noon twilight

Summer noon twilight
parched landscape takes to the sky
blown furiously

Lizards disappear

Lizards disappear
tails sticking out from purslane
abandoning ants

Weeds are overgrown

Weeds are overgrown
at night the garden transforms
cool leaves brush my feet

Disquiet Junto

Disquiet Junto
a little bit descriptive
not too prescriptive

Temperatures ease

Temperatures ease
the sun starts rising later
summer is passing
