summer nights of mangoes soothed with milk, sprinkle of cinnamon

sand piles, sparkly aqua minerals

tiny pink flowers kissing pavements

blinking touch-me-nots, fallen clusters of liquid buds

soft comfort of apple cake

chalk dust, play clay

ashtrays, cigarette stubs

wooden giraffe on wheels, girl in green

earthworms, ladybirds, powdery butterfly wings

stolen elfin doll, mostly blue globe

luscious maroon lipstick

soft scent of a faraway evening in paris

stories traced on water

airy castles, dream fragments

sifting through a shoebox of sepia smiles –

broken, true, hopeful, fading.
