My neighbor’s pigeons –

Evening sun in their wings ~

Trained by the whistle.

Family picnic –

Swifts circling, feed on the wing ~

A fine stand of pines.

We are all shut down –

Nagging feeling about this ~

Nature is smiling.

Magnolia blooms –

Battered by the growing wind ~

White plates on the lawn.

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.

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.

Bought plant today –

Jazz playing as I did so ~

Won’t let this one die.
