burst asunder

8 December 2020

sun-sweet green flesh
rimming a pink rockpool
rosy anemones swirl
in glistening sea gardens
a coral paradise
afloat with life:
Juno’s summer lagoon
splashing kids lick
pink syrup fingers – 

the fig tree watches silently.
guardian of green worlds
on heaped branches high;
dusk rustles quiet leaves.
