tram trip

crowds of Saturday shoppers with their umbrellas
part and close up like a school of fish
around the passing tram

rain and sun

emerging from the shadow of the cloud
the sunshine warms my face and
sparkles on the raindrops in my hair

under a dark menacing sky
a crow caws raucously from the carved victorian finial

hunter and scavenger

two foxes
the first interrupted in the very act of pouncing
the second stealing garbage from two magpies
who watch disconsolately from across the road

tumbling can

in the breeze an empty can tumbles purposefully down the road towards me
it hops neatly onto the pavement for a few yards then hops back down to the road
it goes on past and becomes lodged in the gutter
when I return to the spot it is gone

beautiful in the morning sunshine
a cluster of glistening blue iridescent flies
gather on the corpse of a dead slug
