close up photo of a small white flower with about ten small petals, with more of the same flowers in the background

As shattered glassware,
breadcrumbs on the forest floor,
mushrooming flowers.

Natural talent,
as rhythmic whisper of gums,

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

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

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.
