grass traces circles
dune crests flick quiffs
desert wind

in morning cold air
long shadows blur
the butcher bird hunts

young crows tend graves
pluck red silk petals
drop them into the breeze

under the jam wattle
a puff of lavender butterflies
flit over iron stone

threat bursts becomes action
wet fists pound iron roofs
sun scorched dust
and cloud cold rain
mash in a splash

when elements collide
I wait for the scent to rise

spring day

spring day buds popped
blossom swung under blue sky
compliments of the sun
