a big bang
& the pool table bursts
into a constellation
oh to be able
to guide the stars

  a lady
pulls her pashmina
around her
street urchins sleep
wrapped by the stars

    neighbors bathe
in the TV’s blue light
while I sit
alone with the shadow
of the blood moon

shaft of moonlight
through the midnight blue ...
the shadow
of a garden statue moves
to night's rhythm

  the great blue heron
unfolds its wings
an opening gesture
before it gathers momentum
and soars above the river

space Patricia Prime - New Zealand

    delighting in
the river otter’s trail
of bubbles …
I wonder what I leave
in my own wake
