New season

Spring blossoms, Canberra

Look up then look down,
ever it’ll stay, in your mind—
the springing of spring.

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.

See?

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

Clear head

Walking on a rain-cloudy day, Canberra

Aisle of greenery,
cure for mental pendulum—
long walk to freedom.
