A full rack of clothes in an op-shop.
My favourite op-shop in Canberra: Green Shed

Lifetime of stories,
tucked away in every fold,
op-shop memories.

Young love

Autumn in Canberra

A meek sun peeks through,
warmth against the chilly cheek;
autumn blushes, falls.

Hear, hear!

I took a deep breath and listened to the old brag of my heart. I am, I am, I am.

Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar

Isn’t Sylvia the best? I love her writing—there’s something so enchanting about the way she transforms grief and depression into such evocative words.

I’m away on holiday for a couple of weeks, and until I get back with more haiku and photographs, I’m sharing some of my favourite quotes. Hope you enjoy!

Insides of a dried mushroom

Deep-set mystery,
pleated within a mushroom;
nature, sign of life.

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