Sydney highway

Roadtrip

rows of hardy green 
shoving their faces on mine
driving down the aisle

A hollow tree, Bruce Ridge Nature Reserve, Canberra

All natural

an openly gashed 
hollowness, as within you,
lives in nature too

Trees at Trevillian Quay, Canberra

You just wait

Time, all in good time,
shows bubbling beauty beneath
youth floweriness

Lone swan, lake Ginninderra, Canberra

Solo

never a weakness—
single, silent, stroke of strength
still makes a ripple

Lake Ginninderra, Canberra

Hungry

As child starved all night
tugging at its mother’s heart
laps, laps, lake water
