winter turning
the last of the day's light
in the old pepper tree
again his pace
reins me in

  light shifts
under the arch –
far away
golden rivulets of sand
move in the Sahara

on a broken branch
I tell
a white lie
to comfort my father

still absorbing
the endings in my life
this year
I walk a little faster
against the winter wind

down the garden path
hiding after dark
agapanthus and philodendron
shaking in the breeze

in a simple garden
the banana tree grows
I offer you
one cup of tea
