LORD HOWE ISLAND

Harassed by a wrasse!
“Lord, how I lord on my patch!”
Irascible wrasse.

Clive sings to the birds,
Asks about my bikini.
Cheeky 70.

I carry a black sponge.
It’s a liquorice bathing suit.
Human/ mermaid/seal.

Stranger, please help me.
I’m trapped inside this wet suit!
The zip’s at the back…

————————————————————–

Bright white cockatoo.
Wings of alabaster flash
across storm grey skies.

—————————————————————

Crimson dahlia spent.
Rescued, floats in a pond
Like water lily.

—————————————————————-

WAGGA WAGGA

Wagga Wagga Beach
In winter time is solemn.
A dead wood duck floats.

The tawny bird floats
down Murrimbidgee River.
Water leaves no trace.
