Unexpected Rain

her fascinator
lifts in the breeze
race day

CR

small girl off to school
a garland in her hair

LW

unexpected rain
brings them close
under his umbrella

DB

spokes of their tandem bike
spinning through puddles

BG

shoebox
full of silkworms feasting
on mulberry leaves

BF

on moving morning
the cat stuck on the roof

VP

the new stamps
are all pictures
of brilliant parrots

BF

Beach Boys’ anniversary concert
spotlights their silver heads

LW

white cosmos
softens the edges
of the ancient garden

DB

resting on a tombstone
the stonemason

VP

a lizard
scuttles beneath
a crumbling wall

CR

the cold moon whitens
a midnight track
