Be a rebel

Guidelines though they be,
signs, like rules, regulations
are more fun when bent.

Ageless

Tree in winter, Canberra

Despite severed roots,
budding anew like friendship,
from scratch comes nature.

It comes to us all

Winter sunset in Canberra
Winter sunset, Canberra

Shedding vanity,
marking the passing of time—
winter skeletons.

The rising

Rise of the full moon, Canberra
Rise of a full moon, Canberra

At first light of dark,
as waning sun creeping low,
come the moon chasers.

So changeable

Winter sunset in Canberra

Unpredictable,
five hundred shades of surprise—
nature, as humans.
