Only Just Spring

Watching the possums
Eat a banana in the rain
The 10pm sky flickers
At its fringes

It's only just spring  
And change  
Is in full swing  
Both inside and out

I am dry here  
Standing on the deck  
With my big coat on
Holding my physio ball  
Enjoying the wafting ozone
And the gentle drops 
On the tin roof


I am reminded of things  
And things are reminded of me
The cogs of mind and time
Turning together

Everything is different now
And everything is the same

The sky ignites 
And rumbles knowingly  
As we all head off  
For the night
