in the late night
pleasure of your company-
strange flying bug!
  barely awake
hues of pink overtaking
the mountain range
distant whitecaps
wild sea oats oscillate
along the shoreline
  round the corner
willow branches tangled
in autumn colours
the summer sky
as if clouds could have navels-
I gawk at this one
