I am

piece of wood for a girl
we love.

a ribbon for you

We have many ribbons that keep us 
happy, healthy, bright, and tonight
is a festival for the moon
and everyone is bright.

white and cold

This is a detail of a photographic image of mine. It's snow on a rooftop. Our winter is over in New Zealand, and we had just a dust
of snow. Then, this morning, frost.

waiting for the wind

These sway in the wind, 
and this morning, the wind is quiet.

two roads

Many of us, people and dogs 
alike, take these roads
One road leads to town,
another to river.

be with brightness

We climbed past fern, stream, rimu, 
ponga, tmesipteris. We climbed 
ninety minutes upwards 
to be with this bright expanse.

This looks like 'tin' 
the Chinese character 
for 'field'.

they were golden

When I saw these trees without a lens,
they were golden, but now, somehow, 
silvery.

wind sound

Today the wind is traveling 
about 2 kilometers each minute.  
The sound tires.

candles for the future

Today is the birthday 
of two people in my life.
I see these white fixtures 
as candles and the shape
a triangle, going forward.

Happy new year e and B!

directions

One of the first photos taken with my mobile phone, this image records a friend sailing off on a boat, from one island to another.
The phone has not kept the colors of that wonder afternoon, and the very first images taken were the reverse of what was wanted: I kept shooting parts of the hand or cheek until I figured out the direction the lens was facing.

I am a tree

People are trees. Seamus Heaney was called a great oak at his funeral, and Nieh Hualing has always called herself a tree.

tribute to the claw

A friend recently created 'Claw Script' -
photographic images of the scratches 
her cat makes on the living room floor.
Another friend framed and mounted
the images. This post is a tribute to them.

Pigs live near the end 
of the driveway.
I am glad I am mostly 
a mouth-breather.
