A true comforter,
with warm embracing shoulder,
the oak is a friend.

All the world’s a stage

Hop jump and step up,

shoulder to shoulder we move—

as dancers, soldiers.

It comes to us all

Winter sunset in Canberra

Shedding vanity,
marking the passing of time—
winter skeletons.

Photo bug sees all,
seizes opportunity—
spider in waiting

The rising

Rise of the full moon, Canberra
Rise of a full moon, Canberra

At first light of dark,
as waning sun creeping low,
come the moon chasers.
