alarmed awake
from a deep sleep
- the abandoned car

before closing the curtains
the point of a rooftop
- crescent moon

25 years later -
I'm still playing football
in my dreams

after missing sunset -
behind a high wall
someone shoots a hoop

with sleeping mask
difficult to see
where thoughts end and dreams begin

humid evening -
the whirr of cicadas
from the old fridge

two kittens on a windowsill
watching me
clean the dishes

footpath blocked by cattle -
treading carefully
to avoid a beef

before closing the curtains
looking for the moon
- a cyclist pulls a wheelie

morning sunshine -
constellations of daisies
above the shadow roof

half asleep
clipping fingernails
before bed

a fishing license query -
the post office clerk
sinks into his seat

petrol pump gloves
hitching a ride
with a gust of wind

wintery forecast -
falling blossom
mistaken for snow

break in the storm -
in road spray

rxeitb nsmae trxieb

at the pop-up cinema
swaying side to side
subtitles obscured by heads

summer storm
hail, thunder
and a car alarm

end of the heatwave -
on the carpet

summer breeze -
cathedral bells
and a bird of prey
