Sidewalk sights

Sidewalk flowers, Melbourne

Pops up all around,
as teen’s pimples; sans the mess, 
sign of nature’s change

Give up, never

Unabashedly
governments stand; so can you—
hold your ground with pride.

Spring out

Cherry blossoms in spring time, Canberra

Outgrowing fences,
nature’s tactic to be seen—
jarring phone gazers.

Heatwave

Reflection of the afternoon sun

So bright it’s blurry,
all life is dazed and confused—
in spring comes summer.

See?

Like poetry, tea,
bit light or dark and bitter,
triggers reflections.
