The elders

Royal Botanical Gardens, Melbourne

Shrivelling over time,

crippling under the world’s weight—

the ageing, the tree.

And seek yourself

Wander on, dear soul,
through the woods, the bush and bark—
life, a rainbow dream.

No reason to stay

Clear skies on a winter morning, Canberra

Clear skies, green signals,
bare streets, waiting horizons,
prepare to take off.

Just do it

On the way to the top of Black Mountain, Canberra

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

Reality

With bulging egos
and greedy wars, oversized
is our history.
