POETRY

POETRY

‘for Margaret’

the fall of leaves ...

‘Dust’

A burnt sun sets on a dry desert day ...

‘The giraffe sings to his Creator’

It’s not easy being tall ...

‘There once was a chilly giraffe …’

There once was a chilly giraffe ...

‘Legacy’

A toy giraffe thrown in a tree ...

‘Giraffe’

Giraffa camelopardalis they call me ...

‘In the forest’

A drum roll of thunder sounds ...

‘Trees’

Trees are green ...

‘now I’m old I take my waking slow’

now I'm old I take my waking slow ...

‘not Henry Lawson’

a blur of she-oaks ...

‘Straggly trees’

Straggly trees ...

‘Vanishing point’

Efficiency extraordinary ...

‘My Lorikeet Teacher’

You, watching me in mystified wonder ...

‘Feathers In the Clay’

I learned how not to quit, not to shirk ...

‘from my window on covid time’

a skein of dusky brown ...

‘Doves’

Two doves live two rooves up ...

‘Fledglings’

If I were a bird ...

‘Banjo Moon’

Banjo moon, stranger moon ...

‘Out There’

When I’m out there ...

‘place mat’

a remembrance of some lost richness ...

‘Little black cat’

In tandem we enter the final act ...

‘Sunday afternoon’

Sunday afternoon ...

‘Little Voice’

Little voice, a breeze ...

‘The Waiting Room with Monet’

I don’t need pen and paper ...

‘we talk’

we talk ...
