Reckoning

Plants in the sidewalk, Canberra

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

Clingy

Spider web on a tree

Bound to its carer,
dependant as a newborn,
nature’s creations.

Summertime showers

Sunset during rain, Canberra
Rainy sunset, Canberra

Setting sun goes on,
while the damsels in distress:
unsettled clouds, weep.

Glorious

Afternoon sky on a spring day, Canberra

Mother of rainbows;
an older colour palette:
late afternoon sky.

Dark wanders

Shadows

Shadows in alleys,
illuminate the living,
hiding the future.
