Stop thief!

dark clouds hovering over the city on a summer afternoon, Canberra

They’ve stolen the sun,
season’s greatest cover up—
dark clouds gathering.


Sunlight streaming through a hole-like clearing amongst clouds in the sky, Canberra

Great hole in the sky,
raining sunshine on the world;
a cloudy affair.

Safety net

flowers after rain, Canberra

Clinging for dear life,
as the world warms constantly,
flowers hold raindrops.

Rain child

Rain clouds over Telstra Tower, Canberra
Telstra Tower, Canberra

Gathering darkness,
pregnant clouds labouring hard;
expectant humans.

Joy, in droplets

flowers after rain

Blossoming petals,
with summer rains come blessings;
happiness is due.
