grey heron

startled into flight by dogs
chasing spirit rabbits over
dunes   weekend quietly
arriving delivered by lazy
waves against rocks   yellow
wattle puffs dance above
waxflower bursts coral
gumblossom just birthing
from silent seeds sun slicing
footprints on sand  wind dips

drips warm nectar   endless
mercury glare across shallow
cliff pools emerald moss thread
long hot run fall to water arms
spread wide fingers through
turquoise surprise jellycrystal
saltwater blue abyss heaven
waterfall of bouncing daisies
white petal eyelashes fluttering
