Simple

The ordinary
becomes extraordinary
under a spotlight

Big brother

closeup photo of a weed, with the hairs visible

When someone’s watching,
hair on the back of your neck
stands up, as does grass

Nightly procession

photo of the full moon with a silhouette of trees

Holding up the moon
earth parades its better half
slicing through the dark

Photo of the branches of a gumtree

Diverging branches,
young heads buried in the clouds,
roots deeply grounded

Awakening

Photo of the Jerrabomberra lake with a metal plaque in front of it. The plaque has a poem about sunset and black swans.

A word of caution
sleeping poetics awake
sunset by the lake
