Beauty

silhouette of a leafless tree by the lake, with the pink of sunrise in the horizon behind it

Dense forests are nice;
air teeming with earthiness—
so are solo trees.

Awake

morning sun shining through the branches of a large tree by a lake

Sun shines through branches,
raised arms of party goers—
nature’s disco lights.

Seize the day

When the young shut off
and shun the world, the mature
smile with open arms.

Mornings

As green curtains part
to a gentle autumn breeze,
the sun warms your soul.

Gum nut

Flaunting a red skirt,
Cinderella of the trees—
eucalypt blossoms.
