gobbled by modernity

Tall skyscrapers

A blade of grass

a wildflower

things that pulse

with life

give way

to hearts of mortar

Dreamy …

Dawn in your solitude

Beauty so incredible

Let your beauty

linger on

Let your beauty

linger on

Wait …

for the sunrise

The falling snow

drifts by the window

A little bird

chirps winter’s song

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

The shore was kissed

by sea and mist

The night is an open book

but the world beyond it

remains a mystery …

stopping by

walking tracks

to view

spectacular cataract falls.

by the falls, refreshing

then to the caves

of stalactites and stalagmites

the glow worms

an impression of

all eyes on you!

Further on

in the bush

high up the eucalyptus trees

in the limelight

the king of the bush!

Back to the houseboat

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.
