    I long for the blueness of skies
    Hot sunshine
    A dazzle in my eyes.

    I think of bright surf,
    Bluebottles,
    The smell of dry earth.

    A zephyr through leaves
    Sweet breath

    Sheep Shearing 2018

    I balance the ewe with my knee,
    And follow the old choreography,
    A dance of physical poetry.
