Finding peace

Cataract Gorge, Launceston

Weaving through bushes—
huffing, puffing, racing heart,
calm and clear the head.


Punchbowl Reserve, Launceston

A drip here, drop there,
flowing with humanity—
water god descends.

Reaching for the sky

Uplifting wind blows,
each step down is a step up—
walk the wilderness.

Uncanny parallels

Vulnerable bud—
exposed in a garden bed—
a heart locked away.

Sky-bearing light house,

guiding wayward souls homeward;

motherly almost.
