walking home
from the bus stop at dusk,
her  steps slow –
now on his  fourth stubby
.... he is waiting

free at last
a changed man
re-enters an unchanged world

I raise
the warm tea to my lips
your last kiss

bomb threat in the cathedral
on Christmas eve
come all ye faithful

small child
to bed for the longest night
Christmas eve

summer's day
in the warm silence
the flutter of a butterfly

caressed by the cool breeze
we savour your cherry pie
on the garden seat
where in our spring
the cherries hung on your ears

invited to breakfast
with lorikeets
on arrival
we are crowned with jewels
