Essential worker

Winter sunset, Canberra

Superhero earth
makes miracles from mundane—
all in a day’s work.

Longing

Winter sunset, Canberra

Chase that horizon;
joyous as a mud-smeared child
runs to its mother.

Half full

Cup full or empty,
cause of many emotions,
often as is life.

Welcome sight

Once upon a time, somewhere in Melbourne

Warming up the soul,
as fried egg on Sunday morn—
nature for breakfast.

In her mercy

Royal Botanical Gardens, Sydney

Never turns its back—
nature—unlike mere humans;
if she does, all ends.
