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.

Descending through clouds –

Evocative fluffiness ~

Son’s first curly hair.

Pittosporum scent

Earlier this year than last ~

Hopes for more to come.

Bought plant today –

Jazz playing as I did so ~

Won’t let this one die.

First yoga lesson –

Cars on cobbles pass outside ~

Sounds add to my calm.

Painting my room white –

Playing Bach Cello Suites, live ~

Applause as we end.

Retracing my steps –

Make it down to the river ~

Different person.
