• LUNATION 1195 : AUGUST 1 - AUGUST 29, 2019

on the first day, black cockatoos

(that’s lucky, I think)

desolate calls, slow wings

and yellow tails… glimpsed, then gone


we are all travellers

this windy month

(my self, detached, then dispersed)

August is tossed, turned

and dusty

dry leaves, stale grass, perpetual motion


mid month brings stillness

and deep, calm frost

… winter… digging in its nails

    (only sometimes, in the studio

    glaze tests, like precious seeds

    for spring)


abruptly and abundantly, the wattle


triumphant and generous explosions of gold

are everywhere

(cautiously, I feel hopeful)


on the last day, rain!
