Tea ceremony

Fluttering bulb
the last dregs of tea
being poured

A book I wore out reading
the pitter-patter
in the sparrows throat

Wave goodbye

Rising bath mist
Hide memories
The dew on leaves
Clearing cobwebs
A hand waving past

Faraway Friends

Her eyes flicker
as people run past

her gaze
the length
of summer grass.

let in the cats
till morning hovers
the place where we stopped
being strangers

Her CD collection
now & then
a glimpse of darkness
heatwaves on my palm
I hold it under water
the grinding, spinning world
under my feet.
late evening
our courtship
heads south.

The lands

The bare root of the plantations are white
like the hooves of the raiding deer
a crack of thunder in
this season of morning dew
more unfathomable than the waters
and clouds by the mountain slopes
between breaths, I burn.

Meld

 A face dripping  daylight 
A seaside cafe
Nursing dregs
Over a story
The skyscraper spire
They wear clip on ties
The unseen order of things
Talk of war, sugar in darkness
