Forgotten

photo of a baby shoe on the side of a bike path

Along the foot path,
teens huddle for a Tik Tok—
ghost of childhood lost.

Busy bees

Always on the go,
looking yet never seeing—
the human lifestyle.

Traveller

clouds moving towards the sunset, Launceston, Tasmania

Chasing horizons,
sweeping across winter skies,
a little bird, cloud.

Decision pending

Stands a wise old tree,
for passers by to notice—
waiting at crossroads.

Samesies, but not

Tailrace park, Launceston, Tasmania

So much difference
and yet so much in common—
life-giving plants, us.
