Footprints in wet sand

Footprints in wet sand
glistening with morning light
alone on a beach

Dead fox on the road

Dead fox on the road
Still smiles melting in decay
A smile I return

A sea of humans

A sea of humans
washes over our planet
drained of humane thoughts

A sound of rushing

A sound of rushing
as blood speeds around my ears
when drinking coffee

One more subtlety

One more subtlety
first light is rarely noticed
when birds are not heard

Falcon rides the breeze

Falcon rides the breeze
in-between the waving trees
as birds raise alarm

The quarter eye-roll

The quarter eye-roll
when introducing yourself
for a second time

You will know my dust

You will know my dust
and I will ponder your bones
and wander alone

Close your eyes and hear

Close your eyes and hear
a symphony in-between
your desires and needs

The sparse trees still wait

The sparse trees still wait
with branches guiding me home
in whispers I know

A balloon floats by

A balloon floats by
red, white and blue checkerboard
on hot air and breeze

Around six o'clock

Around six o'clock
the town stirs from its slumber
and trucks will rumble

Introduce yourself

Introduce yourself
a second time and get that
quarter-eye roll look

The curtains stay closed

The curtains stay closed
and the outside world stays out
while I remain in

Autumn's in the air

Autumn's in the air
it smells like burning stubble
and stuff from spring time

People who study

People who study
history know all the best
stories I believe

Peewee Herman's right



Peewee Herman's right
everyone has a big but
as exceptions rule

Something stirs the birds

Something stirs the birds
in the park near my house and
the birds then stir me

As I rant and fume

As I rant and fume
my kids stay cool and agree
and it calms me down

The story is fowl

The story is fowl
when things go "HONK!" in the night.
Must be poltergeese.

As the weeds take root

As the weeds take root
I despair at prickly pear
and box thorn crowned ground

When the lights blink on

When the lights blink on
the pale shape scurries away
as a gecko hides

The motorbike roars

The motorbike roars
perfectly loud on weekends
over my guitar

While a Scotch Finger

While a Scotch Finger
biscuit will remain firm for
five dips into tea

An Anzac biscuit

An Anzac biscuit
starts to wobble after more
than two dips in tea
