A Song Of Hope

When evening slips

into the silence

of the night

Through threatening clouds

and pollution’s haze

Beyond the hills

city lights dim

Moon peeps

above distant horizon

and yet, yes

A song of hope

for a new dawn

Let This Be

Something still

A dreamy melody

and your sweet refrain

Scintillating stars

across the twilight sky

Born to shine the glow

the glow that lives with us

For a million years

Stardust in your eyes

Take to heart and mind

Innate Optimism?

A new environment

Fleeting or captivating

Capacity for dreams …

Wide Angle View

A dreamy lagoon

Peacock blue waters

Yacht sailing

into the sunset

The elegance of stars

Glittering

A magical glow

~

Seasons of discovery

to taste

Visions of these

Intrinsic landscapes

Expansion of opportunities

Seeds At Dawn

How the first light

makes gold the day

~

Seeds at dawn

great with bright thoughts

~

Birdsongs flute from trees

It is peaceful

Emerald valleys and

jade rainforests

~

Visions of these

to discover

Seasons of opportunities …

Awake Dawn

The ocean chorus sings

Sound of lapping waves

Scent of the sea

How sweet the air

Breathe all that is

Surely as the sun will rise

A Scent Of Verse

 Waves of imagination allure

Dreams of creativity inspire

a poetic voice

That Night Divine

That Night Divine

An Indifferent Sky

Once a field of water

surrounding the bay

Now the fishing trawlers

lie still

A fisherman gaze at

the barren sea

wondering …

what little …

there’s left

~

The village deserted

Haze hovers over the hills

But a moment of beauty

as rain clouds part

the moon peeps

a rainbow of hope

across the indifferent sky

It’s Resilience

Setbacks and failures

give us the opportunity

to learn to be resilient

to improve in the future

from these disappointments

Remind ourselves

we have a choice

to move on

Rainbow Over The Lake

Sun’s rays

in misty rain

multi-coloured rainbow

paints the sky

~

Above the blue lake

birds gliding

waltzing in the breeze

~

Verdant pastures

wildflowers and haystacks

never ending stretches

of undulating

green hills

~

Over and beyond

a quaint thatched cottage

still stands

Sunburst

Scaling lofty mountains

challenges

from greater heights

persevere

a burst of sunshine

through the silver lining

inspiring hope

Awakening The Charm

Finally

when rain begins to fall

pitter patter

pitter patter

 the wind

that stirs the trees

wind that sets

the blue gum leaves

swaying violins

playing winter’s song

the warmth of crackling wood

awakening the charm

of winter’s beauty

A Star Tonight

It was fascination

the moon grows bright

Stars will stop

where they are

The sky is light

Tonight, tonight

Here you are

what was just

the world is

A star tonight

Changing Perceptions

Moment by moment

Flashback in time

Will we think differently

Now?

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 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.

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.

Room To Grow

Love

Hope

Grace

Way Of Thinking

Focus on the prize

at all times

The prize is

freedom from …

to overcome.
