playground memories
my part-time father
pushing me ...
the swings and roundabouts
of our relationship

  surf pounding
the rocky coast
the Down’s child
collects broken shells
in a red bucket

    long gone
the songs of yellowhammers
and shining cuckoos …
a day early I flip the calendar
to next month's page

ancient graveyard
in autumn sunshine
this spider
spinning a veil
for the stone angel

  water spiders
and dragonflies float
above reflections
at the bayou's edge
I wonder what is real

space Rebecca Drouilhet - USA

    sipping coffee
to the sound of dead leaves
sweeping across the path …
my definition of success
changing day by day
