a rainy morning

in the coo-coo of pigeons

a bolt of lightning Gillena


children at the window

above the empty playground Radhika


my booster shot

rescheduled again . . .

dark clouds Michael


in my solitude

sips of red wine Gillena


shivering cold

the slow whistle

of our kettle Radhika


a ray of evening light

above the hilltop Michael
