New Farm Park Ginko: Trudie Murrell & John Wainwright

                                                           garden wedding
                                                           storm clouds bring something
                                                           new to wait for


                                                           waiting for the bride
                                                           pageboy and crow
                                                           compare suits


                                                            under the Bay Fig
                                                            a violin plays
                                                            branches dip closer


                                                            long summer
                                                            boughs outstretched
                                                            check for rain


                                                             under the fig tree
                                                             crested pigeons fuss
                                                             house proud

                                                           chattering birds                               
                                                           remove the ear-piece
                                                           when the mobile rings


                                                           there is but one poem                    
                                                           this time a black ant


                                                           the woman beside                            
                                                           the pregnant woman
                                                           rubs her stomach


                                                           autumn breeze                                   
                                                           nothing is still
                                                           but my heart


                                                           small light
                                                           a spider on
                                                           her web


                                                                           poems by John Wainwright

    ‘the woman beside the pregnant woman’ is an all time favourite, no suprises there. I also love ‘there is but one poem’. Cindy, thanks again for the photos and Graham thanks for posting them.
