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

Southern Lights

The shore was kissed

by sea and mist

glowing allure across the sky

ethereally brilliant colours

The night is an open book

but the world beyond it

remains a mystery …

Here you are

the world is

A star tonight

Changing Perceptions

Moment by moment

Flashback in time

Will we think differently

Now?

Under Tropical Skies

In the hazy moonlight

down by the seashore

magic is the moonlight

shining in your eyes

there we’ll meet

on the isle of dreams.

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

high up the eucalyptus trees

Back to the houseboat

tranquil silence

a light breeze

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.

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.
