A young one is trapped
Danger from a gang of thugs?
No! We are friends

Genius by coiffure
Beethoven had hair like this
Their barber's deft hands

These spires inspire me
To venture through unknown lands
Boldly go alone

Ruby red and white
Entices nonchalant eyes
Come closer to me

St Paul’s

On a smaller scale
This reminds me of Paris
Paris travels well

Come under my umbrella
Safe from the weather

Oh, yes, a mouse, too

Pinnacles jut to the sky
My tabernacle

Come and watch us dance
Glide across a darkened stage
We bow to applause

Waves chase each other
From across the deep blue sea
Each one a success

Attracting blossom
Put on bright orange lipstick
Might kiss bees today

Quite the quaint quilt show
Queue up quietly to view

In this craggy land
The ghosts of Maori's past
Still walk in shadows

On my mandolin
I strum a new tune for you
To inflame passion


Pale rose crinolines
Worn to an elegant ball
May I have this dance?

In the Garden

"In ze(n) garden" © NKD Feb 08
Dressed in peacock blue
I walk the scented garden
And meet my teacher

Railway Station

Place is deserted
Yet all the lights are glowing
We're waiting for you

Migrating Birds

"Migrating Birds" Mixed Media (paper, markers and tape)
Through a veiled window
The blackbirds take wing together
My wandering heart

Spring 11

Yellow and orange
Colors warm and attractive
For these jaded eyes

Jardin En Béton

Yellow buttercup
Innocence picks a flower
Puts under my chin

Sunshine Coast

Ominous white clouds
Loom on distant horizon
Beautiful for now

Yea, once more into the breach
Victory is ours

Orange temptation
Draws a restless, brooding soul
Like warm winter hearth

The tilting houses
What if the floors were slanted
Like the street outside

Exuberance on display
Dancing in the breeze

There used to be more of us
Twelve then ten then five

I will climb through cliffs of clay
You care to join me?

Short ones in front, quiet, smile

My shack on the shore
We gather to fish and drink
Forget the fishin’

Sings glory to the people
We’re your audience

Afternoon shadows
Streak across abandoned beach
Sunset hues begin

I have set up camp
Came here with my fishing gear
The mountains won’t mind

Bursting to greet you
Elegant pastel display
With a red surprise

Railway Station 2

Word on road says GIVE
There may be more instructions
To give is enough
