Loafing About*

A darning needle
Dropped from some giant’s fingers
She sleeps behind hill

Pterapogon Kauderni

You look kinda punk
With your tattoos and wild spikes
You in a rock band?

Family has come
To watch the birth of new one
Hope for the future

Swirling precisely
Black and white kaleidoscope
Eyes go round and round

Cloud 7

Cauliflower clouds
A sure sign summer is here
And the cicadas

Dunedin Railway Station 7*

Look upward angel
The clock ticking for no one
And the clouds roll by

Grandpa you’ve grown old
There’s a lot of fight left in you
No pasture just yet

Flickering fingers
Flames surround the roasting seeds
Flower in the hearth

Sameness right to left
And top to bottom, as well
Only in the eye

Red, red profusion
Astonish my eyes vivid
I see only you

University of Otago*

Beyond a green lawn
When the students are ready
The teachers will come

Yes, you’ve got a face
Only a mother could love
Not my mother, yours

As I am present to it
Pulsing, vibrant life

Through shadow and smoke
Appearances deceptive
Turn from shining light

Sunrise 7

Early morning light
I look up to the heavens
Resume morning walk

Dunedin Railway Station*

A wraith floats above
Perhaps the station’s haunted
Ghost of Christmas past

Sea World 135

A shark is a shark
It’s a stark reality
Not a rose nor lark

Wednesday, July 14, 2010


About to erupt
It's potential evident
Going through a stage

This mirror image
Seems like a kaleidoscope
Without the mirrors

Parade of the palms
Marching down the boulevard
Hear the wind whistle

A dandy building
Built in Victorian times
Frosted like a cake

There is always one
Who has to draw attention
By being diff’rent

Galaxy explodes
My eyes, Hubble telescope
Viewing distant life

Design in Glass

My cubist vision
Involves glass architecture
Triangles welcome

Barn 1a

Corral seems sturdy
Barn roof still needs more repair
Patched like worn blue jeans

The Law Courts*

Hear ye all present
The court will come to order
Law is presiding

Sea World 115

So, you go your way
And I’ll go mine. Perhaps we’ll
Meet at a sand bar

Independence Day*

Marching fife and drum
Stirs the rebellious heart
To build a new nation

Saturday, July 3, 2010


Bones of the forest
Jumbled upon the beach sands
We’ll have a campfire

Friday, July 2, 2010

Cloud 11

Wisps of grey ponies
Gallop across evening sky
Vanish in the mist

St Paul’s*

Far from madding crowds
There are places to find peace
Find spirit within
