Breakfast time in the rainforest

outside away from this writing corner
subtle rain finds surfaces
stops and gathers itself

the birds are about
dogs eager to go out
morning is unfolding damp & new

fern fronds unfurling
embryonic curls in the canopy

I have been out now
admired new moss
examined oxalis under the fir trees
considered where to put ohelo berries gathered yesterday
taken in the plumeria fragrance
... a stem plucked in Hilo …

now drenched in April
we move along to hot coffee
rain muttering as I shed jacket
already it misses me?
