Wide Angle View

A dreamy lagoon

Peacock blue waters

Yacht sailing

into the sunset

The elegance of stars


A magical glow


Seasons of discovery

to taste

Visions of these

Intrinsic landscapes

Expansion of opportunities


So Simple Yet

Integrity of character

is strength

Stand tall

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 …

Melody Of Roses

Sweet and gentle

Alluring days

love and splendour

Love’s allegro

playing softly

Fresh scent of Spring

Love’s pure joy

Scarlet roses

Melody of love

Imagine …

As I fly over

vast stretches

of miniatures

I see tiny trees

minuscule rivers

sheep strewn acres

on meadows

of wildflowers

A sky like a marble top

cotton wool clouds swirl

and drift against

the shadowed lilac hills

into a soft beige

landscape of the wild country

Great Southern Land

enchanting landscape

of beauty

Summer Sweet Summer

Moonbeams kiss the sea

How dreamy the magic

of the summer night

The stars above

Star of love

Music and splendour

I remember

that lovely melody

with a thousand echoes

a summer breeze

Summer sweet summer

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

Come Flea With Me!

To market, flea market
such an exciting
place to be
Lots of bric-a-brac
you name it
they’ve got it!
People come
 far and wide
weekend market
home grown produce
home made cakes
and honey
children and adults
picking up
a bargain
here and there
Interesting down under
with their instruments
adding to
the fun
for everyone!
Handmade soaps
sweet scented candles
art and plants
or some artisan chocolates
and a cuppa with me?

A Certain Tenderness


when flowers

speak and sing

I listen to

the gentle rain

In nature

one of those

leisurely moments

A bird sings


Now there’s nothing

but complete silence



A Tale Of Art

Wonder walls

Chirpy backdrop

Mural street art

Bright hues

The art walk

Public space

Street art versus graffiti

Any difference

in forms of art

or expression?

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

Stunning Katherine

Trek, canoe, bike

misty waterfalls

cascading down

deep gorges

rugged mountain ranges

Spectacular views


Monsoon forest

native wildlife

flora and fauna

Thermal springs

refreshing dip



palette of colours

Camp around

sing along

Canopy of stars


Music Within The Words

The music of life

it seems to me

a paradise where

roses bloom

beside a garden wall

when stars are bright

the nightingale sings

a melody of

love’s refrain

a song at twilight

a symphony of hues

the magic of poetry!

A Landscape Lost

A fisherman’s wharf

at dawn

basking in the warm glow

of a new day

Vibrant landscape

glimpse of the fishing island

An immense sense

of incredible beauty

or possibility?

That spark …

The rarity of that moment

like the day

you pick the flowers

in spring

and the air smells of lavender

a vision of your journey

as bright

as the sparkling stars

With these fleeting days

and through the passage of time

the season bursts

beauty of life



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
