Master’s palette

Autumn afternoon, Canberra

Look up and around
at nature’s colouring book—
the world as we know.

The ode

Cold autumn day in Canberra

The road to winter;
mighty leaves down on their knees,
pay homage to earth.

Pause, behold

Riding through autumn trees

Earn the rider’s high:
pedal on through screaming thighs,
then stop to cherish.

Be real

Autumn in Canberra, Australia

Shows its true colours,
proud, original—nature
unlike the human.

Blindness

Autumnal afternoon, Canberra
Autumnal afternoon, Canberra

To claim nature’s gifts,
and still be oblivious—
blind is privilege.
