"... brevity is the soul of wit ..."
- William Shakespeare


Keith Nunes lives beside Lake Rotoma near Rotorua, New Zealand. He was a newspaper subeditor for 25 years but changed lanes and now sees life from a different perspective. He's had works published widely in New Zealand and also in bulkier nations. He has been anthologised and commended in competitions (means 4th) and is a Pushcart Prize nominee. His book of poetry and short fiction, "catching a ride on a paradox", is sold by the lunatic fringe.

Isthmus Rain

my bargain bin plastic coat
is slapping against my running thigh

felled trees lying as low as they can possibly go,
a brave rimu stands as a flagstaff taunting those who come with heinous intent

the lawless nighthawk swoops and swerves,
speaks to me in passing: "Do you love this as I do?"

and it's gone,
seduced by eternity
