Beyond human power

Bushland on the Mount Ainslie hike, Canberra
Mount Ainslie hike, Canberra

We strive to control,
to twist nature to our will;
unyielding, it grows.

Never judge

Natural order:
survival of the fittest;
looks be deceptive.

Just do it

No crime, exploring—
defy laws of gravity
be framed by nature.

The climb

Up on a mountain,
baked, kissed, and blessed by the sun,

Seeking unpaved paths,
scavenges through the bushes,
a rainbow catcher.
