after the rain
the unkempt beard
of my garden
in urgent need
of a good trim

the flower garden
until dinner
it's years since anyone
asked me to wash my knees

    warm rain
spilling down bamboo
the stillness
of green tea
before the whisk

spacePamela A. Babusci - USA

a phone call
everything goes blurry
the neighbour's little girl
waving her bubble wand

  wind in the pines;
sleet on the roof;
shades pulled down –
I worry
that I feel no pain
