On the hill

with a smile she slices
a path in the grass for the wind —
a machete of ice

A NOTE: Yesterday I strode up to the Mt Victoria lookout to prepare for a whole day at the New Zealand International Festival, four consecutive films. It was bracing! and at the top, a City Council worker was cutting the grass, and clearly enjoying herself.

shadow on the page
I am relaxed
about giving this a go

nobody depends on me
and mundane chores
matter as much as inspiration

drop the hierarchy of jobs
yet some bring joy
I starve when they go ago

it’s a process to pause and notice
right now ‘cos dot dot dot
I stopped writing

I don’t like rushing ahead
I prefer to stop halfway
I need to think
