The sound of water –

Depends how long I shower ~

The rain on my ear.

Something to enjoy –

Most pleasure I’ve had in weeks ~

The single new frond.

Put watch on wrong way –

Thinking of what I have lost ~

Half the evening.

Spider explosion-

Trying not to disturb them ~

Then they move their webs.

Swimming facing down –

Chasing the sun sand ripples ~

Small fish ignore me.

Two moped girls pass –

The passenger is stroking

Driver’s ponytail.

Contact lens bubbles –

I brought a set of ten pairs ~

Helps to measure time.

Swim to the island –

A church once stood here ~

Now, a lost sarong.

A holiday ends –

Inflatables left behind ~

Drifting in the breeze.

Grandma killed snails –

Jesus, she was so ruthless ~

I walk between them.

A moment of calm –

Deciding what to read next ~

Or to read at all.

A family lunch –

I don’t care where I’m sitting ~

Each of them that good.

Easter egg hunting –

Sun high and warm already ~

Quick, before they melt!

Descending through clouds –

Evocative fluffiness ~

Son’s first curly hair.
