On the first raindrop
I come awake, wondering
How long it will last.



Somehow I've become drought-obsessed.

Chopper in the dark.
Are some veterans frightened?
And then it flies away..

In 2016
So many famous people
Felt the hand of Death.

Some have survived, though,
So do they wait, fearful, for
2017?

"You have no GP,"
Says the Indian doctor,
But isn't she one?



Two out of three visits to the doctor completed, all to get a figure for my HBA1C which I don't give a poop about anyway. No wonder we can't afford our medical system.

Forlorn cherry tree.
DNA makes you blossom.
Inexorably.

O short-lived summer!
This morning I nearly froze.
WTF?



Running the gamut of punctuation marks…

And now the warm days
Have come to Lake Wendouree
Even the swans sing.

US election
May have gone down the wrong path…
But I still have toast!

Walking past the swans.
They hiss and honk and flutter
But don't attack—yet.

Cream in my coffee
As the weather's warming up.
Yeah, this is the life.

Another grey dawn
Leading to a grey morning.
Where's the blue Spring?
