  1. cold wind
    the busker plays
    a little out of tune

    the night tram carries
    the fallen leaves

    city outskirts
    the fog around
    every corner

  2. poplar murmurs
    the Pool of Reflection

    bus shelter
    the homeless man
    unfurls a blanket

    Opera House
    an autumn breeze
    fills the sails

  3. faceless in Pitt Street
    the homeless man
    and his dog

    Opera House steps
    a lone seagull
    stands with the tourists

    autumn rain
    a kookaburra
    in my courtyard

  4. foggy morning
    en route to work


    unable to think
    noisy machines plunder
    the stadium


    sticking point–
    protestors argue
    the Brexit backstop

  5. autumnal equinox –
    so many leaves ready
    to fly
    old station –
    in a bed of leaves
    a stray cat
    intense traffic –
    a seagull shadow
    on my hat
