Morning Mists of Summer

Morning mists of summer
hover over chattering lorikeets
a drip plays a soft continuous beat
from the drainpipe
creating patterns on the paver below
where a mottled moth
sits
the puppy has a quiet interest
in the luminous beetle
gently tapping it with her nose
the old dog
feels alive in the deceptive coolness
the cat stalks small prey
beneath the frangipani bloom
relishing the cool wash of this morning
a painting in motion
that hangs in the memory
Soon the sun will lift the canopy
And all will retreat
Into the shade of another long hot day
