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.
