Musical

a hiking trail with tall, slender gum trees on either side of it

Natural talent,
as rhythmic whisper of gums,
percussionists.

In search of the peak
hiking beyond hiker’s high—
just footprints on sand.

Undead

Every step we take
towards a stream of water—
a dream is alive.

Taking in the view

Halfway up the Mt. Remarkable summit trail, SA, overlooking small town Melrose and the Flinders Ranges beyond

Climbing a mountain—
miles to go before I sleep,
but will stop and breathe.

Trail

Hiking up mountains,
paving way for more humans—
at nature’s mercy.
