Fresh breath

Summer sunset, Canberra

With raindrops come hope,
as the sun shines through treetops—
blues lost in nature.

Tucked away

Hiding in safety,
flowers, behind curtain leaves,
as child from mother.

Look up to no-one

Expecting a life,
waiting, for generations,
monumental fool.

Solitary soldier

Residential neighbourhood, Canberra

Holding the fort up,
arms far and wide, reaching out—
one-tree neighbourhood.

Natural medicine

Trees and bushes along the trail to white rocks, Queanbeyan
Along the trail to white rocks, Queanbeyan

Cure for misery,
forgotten, as history,
field of greenery.
