Lockdown tales

Summertime sunset, Canberra
Backyard sunset, Canberra

A picnic at home,
with sunset in the distance;
stay home and wonder.


Summer sunset, my backyard in Canberra

Ceaseless power lines,
durable as humankind;
clog in nature’s heart.

Summer sets

Shadows after sunset

Heading off, the sun,
as a rake, collecting dusk;
shadows in its wake.

Adieu, the day

Spring sunset behind the Telstra Tower, Canberra
Telstra Tower, Canberra

The skies come alive,
coloured by remnants of light;
fare welcome the night.


Afternoon sky on a spring day, Canberra

Mother of rainbows;
an older colour palette:
late afternoon sky.
