summer afternoon

10 May 2006

when the weather is lonely
everything looks orange
and even the soft drizzle
comes too hesitantly,
tasting the still air
before hugging the ground
too closely.

when the weather is lonely
everything is deathly silent.
no swish of narra leaves
or falling of fire tree flowers.
time itself seems to grind
to a painstaking stop

but for the furious setting of the sun.
