The Secret Passage


ice cream
in my visual field
sultry heat…

wild things in the ‘hood
i lick the core
of Serenity with gusto

the magpie
perches on the eucalyptus tree
the sound of passion

hungry lips
in the Isles of Promise
i sing the blues

the green light…
romantic tales of wonder in
the text message

the spark of the divine
in the secret passage beloved of migrants
wattle blossoms

i cross the road
thinking of the falling leaves
the challenges of living on the edge
