Resistance

winter morning frost on flowers

Standing up to time,
butterfly-winged spring petals,
blooming in winter.

Silent stalker

morning fog over the Launceston as seen in the distance with the sun lightly visible
Foggy mornings in Launceston

Casting shadows far,
eagle over an anthill,
fog rolls above town.

Competing

view of the ocean in the distance and grassy path closeby with white clouds gathering overhead

Chasing their own tails,
bounding onto luscious fields,
ocean’s athletes, clouds.

Warm glow

Photo of a snakeskin discarded by the side of a wooden walkway over the Tamar river

Summertime basking,
slithering along the edge—
sweat beads on eyebrows.

Remembering

A string musical instument made of leather on display at the Queen Victoria Museum and Gallery in Launceston, Tasmania - the instument's shadows are visible on the wall behind it
Queen Victoria Museum and Gallery, Launceston, Tasmania

Reverberating,
lingering between cobwebs—
shadows of the past.
