We used to just have a cup of coffee


		Possibly with milk

			Maybe with sugar

Mostly on Sundays and with cream as a bonus

Today they call it caffe latte or cappuccino

	Americano for the purist

Wow, a 2nd camping trip,
Now please don’t flip,
How on earth did I agree,
After the snake and me,
My husband asked so nicely,
And explained precisely
Where we would go,
Not to the bush,
Where a snake lay in ambush!
So hitched up our boat,
To take to...Read More

I had never been camping in my entire life,
This was a first for me as husband, and wife ,
For our two boys this was bonding time,
CJ a seasoned camper, Ricky a rookie, ,
So far, all was fine.

Absolving Ablutions
Some people believe that sin
Is easily washed away
Like scum on a bathtub wall
Sin sticks to your DNA

Although you may feel absolved
There is a Judgment Day
When all of your offspring discover
They have the Devil to pay...Read More

incremental solid and deliquescent motions because ingestion fulfils that
autonomous need to shed ablutions but here I declare ‘Waste not Want not’

Ladies and Lords
when ensconced upon
your porcelain thrones.
I pray you,
leave your cell phones,
completely alone.
Then when your 
ablutions are done,
wash your hands,
and resume your
texting marathon.
Yet, further still.
apply phone cleaning wipes. 
So, when we share 
phone photos,
neither of us will 
likely become ill,

Pain and Rain

On a wet, spring day
Branches drip loneliness.
Sunbeams stream gentleness
Pain and rain stain the soul.
Distance separates.
Ablutions wash winter's grime.
Absolution is near.

I stir sleepily stretching awake
an hour or so before dawn
tossing back the covers
I get to my feet and stretch

Ablutions now done
I call the dogs to heel
we all pile into my car

Heading for a great valley

The first is like an imaginary vision;
a tiny apparition, in three quick flashes.
The landing, one sip, then disappearing,

sweet fairy wren.

Then, there is the brazen, full, plop of the Currawong;
raucous, self proclaiming
 with flapping ablutions

and on exit, stealing one

They'd left him some breakfast, a big chunk of meat
from an unlucky deer they had pulled down.

The Religion of Everyday Things
We return at nightfall, shoulders bowed, weighed down by slights and insults. They 
fall from us at the door,
as everything beyond these walls recedes. The horns and sirens, the pain and 
desperation that invade our outside life,
all are silenced.

Summer Ablutions

Stunned by July in a hammock
he remembers the apricot wife 
no longer here
one curler more and the flutter
of leaves in the orchard
the sound of trees 
letting go
a downpour of plums
flowing over
the wicker
propped open
