Habitat held

Eliza glides down the path through the girdled jasmine gate

as a balletic pīwakawaka
leaves for the trees
each hued by the sun

neither cares to define the melding of colour and light

the shade
to the soundproofed trail
that leads
back to where they started
where they stand as mottled mirror
to the other
