It’s a sign!

Earth, frozen in time
packs a crunch under my feet,
winter is coming.

Finding peace

Cataract Gorge, Launceston

Weaving through bushes—
huffing, puffing, racing heart,
calm and clear the head.

Teenage earth

Beautiful pimples,
breaking out from the earth’s crust—
dry weather symptoms.


Punchbowl Reserve, Launceston

A drip here, drop there,
flowing with humanity—
water god descends.

As gust against waves,
ever-changing autumn leaves,
sweep you off your feet.
