Pure

Coordinated;
undisturbed by human kind—
nature in its prime.

Morning

Walk by the lake, Canberra

down the winding road
trees snaking up to the skies
paving peace on path

Poser

Trees by the lake Ginninderra in winter

A bee, tree, carefree
hip, like tip-dyed teenagers
lining sunset roads

Morning shivers

Winter morning in Canberra

piercing shards of cold
as passing through walking ghost
winters be crazy

Hungry

Lake Ginninderra, Canberra

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