a bird and a single bench in the bikepath along Lake Ginninderra, Canberra

Peck pecking away,
company for the lonely,
peace by the lake front.

I see you

a pair of purple swamphens, one looking directly at the camera, Canberra
Purple swamphens by the Lake Ginninderra, Canberra

Moving gingerly,
as predator towards prey,
worm eater locks eyes.

Tree’s advice

A leaf-less tree surrpounded by other types of trees, Canberra

Though standing alone
surrounded by lusciousness,
stay weird and happy.


Lake Ginninderra, Canberra

Flaunting its backside,
casts away the bore; swan scales
vibrant horizons.


undisturbed by human kind—
nature in its prime.
