hourglasses, etc

this post is about sand. my Sweet had an angiogram yesterday and will need a bypass operation. oh dear. age. hourglasses. sand.

sounds of morning
the trickle of sand
through fingers

home again —
the heart-patient sweeps
his path


and some other rakes and more sand:

an old lady’s story
the gardener leans
on his rake

Himeji Gardens
red leaves ride waves
of sand

sweeping leaves
but they
keep falling

Himeji Gardens in the south parklands of Adelaide, are a cultural exchange with Adelaide’s Japanese sister city, Hemiji.
