November 2017

Brrr, winter’s here…

Frost hides in tree-shade,
makes white shadows, evading
low sun’s greening touch.



Even here…

A blackbird couple,
sitting in an orange tree,



A different world…

Orange trees’ dense shade,
blue-smoke sardine aromas,
bright screech of parrots



Finally, after weeks of storm, calm, stillness, dry days…

A terrible calm.
The only sound the tinkle
of dry leaves falling.
