Everything Wonderful

You were there.
Like the cherry tree
bare and new,
tucked in with love

and me, cluttered 
as birdsong, showing you
everything wonderful
before your eyes had cleared

**

one direction
it's black and white
the blue gum 
and the sulo bin
carved out of street light
like midnight statues

behind me the house glows
gently yellow
like your hair
and the warm colour of your hug

pressed into my dressing gown
your thin arms
grounding me
-  that tiny cherry tree

showing me the way now
reminding me
of everything wonderful
