from yesterday's rain
the mountains' sport of lush greens -
far away dreams enfold


a riot of colour
departs eventually -
falling leaves


the rain has ceased -
dart of a kingfisher
in lieu of rainbows


anxious upturned faces -
a spot of day darkness


as fishers as friends
out to sea in a boat -
cormorant fishing


circle of brighness
in the coolness of night -
beautiful moon


white butterfly -
on the other side of the street
distance spins its tale

Absolutely beautiful, Gillena! I especially love:
'the rain has ceased -
dart of a kingfisher
in lieu of rainbows'.
