Closeup photo of yellow flowers.

A burst of yellow
the first showers of summer
warmth to a cold heart


Photo of the Jerrabomberra lake with a metal plaque in front of it. The plaque has a poem about sunset and black swans.

A word of caution
sleeping poetics awake
sunset by the lake


Closeup photo of a dandelion

Breaking through surface
stronger than high-power drills
tiny unarmed seed

Time out

Photo of a tree’s extended branches as seen from underneath it.

Awning overhead—
picnic on a cold spring morn—
foreshadows warm days


Photo of a tree with leafless branches.

Tangled greasy mess
ignored as doll’s knotted hair
spring starved lakeside trees.
