Changes
changes, so much happening, and so much for us to deal with as a generation, for the first time...

this aging earth the joy of children's laughter

The light

of the most distant stars, which describes for us the size and age of the universe, won't reach us for aeons, leaving us to imagine ...

dark space the red shift of my mind

Honeysuckle

shares its sweet perfume as this summer day runs to an end, while I enjoy the coolness and the warmth of her naked body next to mine ...

hot summer day the sweet scent of Honeysuckle and the one I love

JUNE JULY GRAFFITI

June to July months -
looking back moving forward
a sandwich filling

too soon much too soon
one day at a time applies -
yearnings for Christmas

caught in the middle?
there is no space in between
June and July months

one banana sliced into eleven pieces



banana peel -
where the road curves
a pile of garbage

© gillena cox

Whats this all about??? okay; i've eaten one sliced banana for the morning, planning on a more sturdy breakfast after i post; no i did not litter, threw my peel in the kitchen garbage; Whats this about garbage? i can see the pile of bagged garbage in the street, the garbage collectors pick up the bags most time in the wee hours of dawn and sometimes later in the mornings.
#Banana peel #garbage - inspiration for my digital art and haiku today.

a verdant drive through -
near a lagoon vendors ply
first view of the beach

a verdant drive through
from the side of the mountain
water tricking down

near a lagoon vendors ply
their sugar cakes and fudge -
wide toothy smiles

first view of the beach
smell of the salty sea
draws me closer

they tease the seascape
coconut palms fronds in the wind -
sound of lapping waves

seagull -
each dive from the rocks
feeds with precision

sundown -
a bus trudging through forests
such narrow paths
