Reckoning

Plants in the sidewalk, Canberra

Silent observers,
sitting in sidewalks of life,
poking our conscience.

Disappearing act

Summer sunset, Canberra

Fiery ball of light,
melting in the cold darkness,
as candle, sunset.

Guard

Telstra Tower as seen from across the Lake Burley Griffin
Canberra’s iconic Telstra Tower, from across the Lake Burley Griffin

Beneath the cobwebs,
as a knight in shining suit,
guards land, monument.

Journey

Lake Burley Griffin, Canberra
Lake Burley Griffin, Canberra

To faraway sands,
setting sail, seeking future;
the lost treasure: soul.

Unapologetic

Lake Ginninderra, Canberra

Flaunting its backside,
casts away the bore; swan scales
vibrant horizons.
