Peace

photo of the Flinders Ranges as seen from the Mount Remarkable Summit hiking trail

To be is to be
staring into the distance
atop a mountain

Storytellers

Near invisible,
life between the crevices—
spiders spin stories.

Phoenix

a garden patch with about 15 strawberry bushes, three tomato plants, and a handful of tiny, barely visible spinach plants

From dirt they arise,
slicing years of hardened earth—
weeds in my garden.

Moonshine

photo of the full moon at night, with silhouettes of trees and roofs

Polar opposite—
counterbalancing solar,
lights up the night sky.

Posing

photo of a large leafless tree with its limbs leaning towards one side and clouds surrounding the tree's limbs against a blue sky

Robed in milky clouds,
her stretched limbs embracing life—
gumtree dances, still.
