At night I wander
out into the darkness
upon the hill on which our house stands.
I am surrounded by rolling countryside
The Waipa river flowing in blackness
beneath me and out to the tasman sea.
Pirongia mountain sleeps in a slumber of
A horizon of night sky.
West from Kahakura across the Waipa river
the rising moon, as usual, is
Climbing above the forest and fields of Te Kowhai
Giving glow to all the nocturnal wildlife
That sings, calls, stirs or hunts.
Te Kowhai at night.
Te Kowhai, Waikato, New Zealand.
Mixed media and acrylic, on canvas.
