The Houseboat

An unforgettable experience

Exploring  

the Riverina region

adventures in fishing

scenic river trip

stopping by

walking tracks

to view

spectacular cataract falls.

~

A picnic lunch

by the falls, refreshing

then to the caves

the amazing formation

of stalactites and stalagmites

the glow worms

an impression of

all eyes on you!

~

Further on

in the bush

wild koalas

munching

gum leaves

high up the eucalyptus trees

the kookaburra was there

in the limelight

the king of the bush!

~

Back to the houseboat

after an exciting

day of adventure

watching

the setting sun

reflecting

on the river

the silhouette

picturesque

to capture.

~

Stars gazing into the night

tranquil silence

a light breeze

the gentle river

flows

all is still

through

the night

of bright tomorrows …

The Alluring Rose

Soft winds and summer skies

the gentleness of the rain

was in the wind

The summer rose

sweeter than honey

O work of art

bliss of beauty and love.

Hush Now …

My love

quiet is the night

luminous jewels

sparkling brilliantly

heavenly gems

glowing moonlight

love’s music.

Wanderlust

The rainforest

wildflowers and wild birds

They are the miracles

if we choose to

not blindly pass through.

~

Will we choose to wander

never to behold

the beauty

the mundane is

so eager to offer?

~

A world so pristine

awaits on

the tips of our lashes.

Power And Folly

Three profound words

Consumed by power

A human folly.

The Magic Of Autumn

The rustling leaves

of season’s colour

The rustic shades

of crimson and gold

When sunrise shone

in wondrous splendour

the wind rustled

to a thousand violins

awakening harmony

charm of autumn’s beauty

in gold and blue

that glorious morn

that magic of autumn.

Stars Of Twilight

Colours of the cosmos

from the strings

of the stars

rhythm and celestial movements

glowing blue waves

sandy songs

lullabies of seashells

echoes of music.

A Field Of Dreams

Sunlight filtering

through leafy trees

handcrafted sculptures

the garden café

bustling with life

reminding us that

we are not solitary islands

we meet to catch up

so no matter how

lonely it may appear

you are not alone.

~

Write your words

or speak out loud

like on a stage

a field of dreams

where words are birds

set free from their cage

watch them fly

wings stretched wide

they glide through

the wind in a way

that is just different.

Unquenchable Optimism

The winds play

and dance for joy

solitude

a calm reflection.

Let’s Go Alfresco

Iris@poetsmith

To the trattoria

by the river

the harbour’s

bustling nightlife

restaurants galore

cosmopolitan cuisine

~

Just sipping

a café latte

or savouring

a wood oven pizza

watching

the world go by!

~

Across the harbour

the bridge

brightly lighted up

and the view

of the magnificent

Opera House

catches the eye!!!

~

The summer night

full of life

starry sky

moonlit

reflections on the river

lovers stroll

holding hands

dreams are made of this.

Echoes Of Love

Vast, vast as the ocean

high as the heavens above

Stars twinkling brilliantly

all is still

Silent is the night

Imagine …

the beauty all around

and the music of the sea

the music of the sea

echoes love.

Magic Sails

I watched the red sails

out on the ocean

in the warm glow

of the fading sun

soft ripples

glistening waters dance lightly

like ballerinas nimble

tiptoeing the ballet

Magic Flute

pirouetting, twirling

something dreamy

magical tranquility.

Melody Of Love

Gentle rain

caress the leaves

Summer rose

sweetly perfumed

Birds merrily chirping

a song of tenderness.

Rainforest Canopy

Sunlight shimmered

across rippling waters

The towering redwood trees

by the mountain lake

Small but cosy cabins

Nature hikes

Picnic by the falls

or a swim

Picturesque views of

the Yarra Valley

Campsites nestled amongst

the rainforest reserve

Beautiful variety of wildlife

birds and trees, native flowers

It’s summer magic!

Room To Grow

Love

Hope

Grace

A Taste Of Magic

The haloed moon

moonbeams shining

silence of the night

starry, starry sky

the music of gentle waves

echo a serenade lullaby.

Way Of Thinking

Focus on the prize

at all times

The prize is

freedom from …

to overcome.

O’ Night Divine

Star of Hope

guiding with Your Grace

touching hearts

candle gleaming

in the silence of the night

Peace and Joy

Love so Divine.

Merry Christmas
