Below the blue sky


A gum tree with hanging bark,

feathery leaf cushions

and blue sky, becoming lighter towards its base.


A grass field moving towards it,

pale green and yellow.

Shadows against the fence.


The blinding sun above distant trees –

colourless, flat, already black

in its glare.


Twi-owwut twut twow



Two objects – an oval pebble,

patterned by grass shadows and sunlight –

a down feather, swivelling like

a compass.
