the meeting

Here, lake meets sea.

How we travel
with the camera
at eye, in hand.

white light

Some days, the light 
is so bright and white 
that we might disappear into it.

white kiwi

Maybe the bird guards us and trees 
for millions of years.
They stay with the same mate, 
sleep with beak tucked,
make two balls of hair in the daylight.

in the town of Ekehetuna, New Zealand
