Just do it

On the way to the top of Black Mountain, Canberra
On the way to the top of Black Mountain, Canberra

No crime, exploring—
defy laws of gravity
be framed by nature.

Pause, behold

Riding through autumn trees

Earn the rider’s high:
pedal on through screaming thighs,
then stop to cherish.

Be real

Autumn in Canberra, Australia

Shows its true colours,
proud, original—nature
unlike the human.

The audacity

Tree

Reaches for the skies,
defies the unnatural,
as nature intends.

Blindness

Autumnal afternoon, Canberra
Autumnal afternoon, Canberra

To claim nature’s gifts,
and still be oblivious—
blind is privilege.
