it's been ages since
she settled here for good
and yet her eyes
flash with each whistle
of a passing train

  plum tree
blossoming the last week
of summer …
is it too late to tell you
all the things I never shared

    this daughter who taught me
all about ladybirds
and their different spots …
I show her the tiny mole
she never knew she had

night noises,
the settling sounds
of the house
and those I love around me
all breathing in the dark

  I know you
just as arms
by instinct know
the thoroughfares of coats
you are my seams

space Kathryn Ross - Australia

    in your eyes
the sparkle in spring,
tears in fall
as I hold you at the station …
the early train’s whistle
