life’s lusciousness


a world full of the wonders of wetness this morning:

dry grey gum trunks lacquered black
bougainvillea blossoms bowing to earth
glistening tubs of terracotta
murmuring, chuckling down-pipes
puddles popping
tyres squishing, splashing
staccato-speak of roof tiles
ducks demanding more
earth silently sucking, sucking

the lusciousness of it all!
