close up photo of a large crack in the middle of a gumtree's trunk

Small split on a stump
a crack in the universe
for spiders on gums


sprawled branches of a gumtree with clouds in the background

Specks of milky dust
nestled between brown bristles
sun shines through branches

Native forests sing
deep space communicators
among satellites


photo of the morning sun streaming through the leaves and branches of a gumtree

Natural vibrance
eyes gleaming through leafy fringe
sun behind a gum


photo of a gumtree with thin clouds around it

Reining the clouds in
swish like a wraparound skirt
rained on eucalyptus
