Say, can you find me?
I’m under mummy’s tummy
How demure of me

Scamper down to waiting bus
Stay together class

Banana kayak
When hungry, paddle to shore
Then peal and eat it

Purple butterflies
Hover where Irises were
I need new glasses

Sheltered from the winds
We watch the white capped ocean
Snug in our cocoon

Oriental friends
Out for a stroll in the dusk
Stay close, hold my hand

Communal living
Just like early Roman days
I’m so embarrassed

Risen high in ages past
Intrigues venturous

Coral attraction
Reveals naked ambition
Basking in the sun

In humble abodes
We face the same direction
We live the same lives

Spinning round to ecstasy
I will let them whirl

Beyond dawn’s mist
Purple mountain majesty
Take my breath away

From my castle keep
I guard against the vandals
Stealing the laundry

My thanks to Susan for her photo

Poppies Past

This harvest of dreams
Brought to life in hazy smoke
All cares left behind

Palette of colours
Brown, aqua, blue and yellow
Far as eyes can see

A Japanese scene
Umbrellas caught in the rain
They scurry about

Hey, look out below
Bus is about to be smashed
Optic illusion

Her crevice attracts
A willful mind to explore
The secret places

Crimson and yellow
Invite insects to dinner
Propagate we must

A mothers' love is
Protection from the fierce winds
You watch over me

Quiet planet invasion
Spreads its spore world wide

On this placid lake
I am gently rocked to sleep
I will fish later

Find yourself a seat
Welcome to the cathedral
Silent music plays

Coquettish, we flirt
With shy glances we invite
Make our acquaintance

Slap, I challenge you
Drawn a line in the water
Cross it if you dare

I have something to teach you
Oui, Madame Fungi

This tumble down town
I’m not tipsy, the world is
Better rub my eyes

Follow the leader
On aboriginal paths
As it was, it is

Aroma beckons
My eyes to search for the source
Ah, my nose found you

Stewart Island Shags

Shaggy rookery
Cormorants don't mind the Gull
Too busy preening
