A Brief Moment
Poetry by Noelene Sanderson

The bulk of the Kowhai tree, peaceful
and still...
here and there, at end of branches,
slight pendulum swing
of fan of leaves.
 
And the young mother,  in the black sunhat sprouting
raffia feathers,
hands her small daughter an apple.
 
The old woman on the rug looks up,
and sees
GOD
in the leaves.
And this is the only moment
that exists..
