An Eastern water dragon, a common resident in South East Queensland

We sit side by side,
earthling and water dragon—


panoramic photo of the ceiling of a glass dome, with a tree's overhanging canopy covering the right side of the image

photo of two golden retreiver dogs lying on the cold tiles, exhausted

Knocked out of action,

dogs breathe heavily.


Panoramic photo of a tall tree, it’s branches almost ashen white against deep bright green leaves.

Seeping into veins;
tree’s central nervous system,
tropical rain storm.


Panoramic photo of a large tree.

Entwined in passion,
reaching out to each other,
trees communicate.
