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

Sunset

palette of colours

Camp around

sing along

Canopy of stars

Eureka!!

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

awakened

 

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

Moon Dreamer

Midnight

not a sound

at that moment

Moonlight luminescence

Heaven of diamonds

A magical glow

The magical glow

Let the memories linger 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

An Unspoken Language

Daybreak

Beauty lies on an unknown beach

Rhythm and echo

A jetty from a distance

The depth of

a dreamy dawn

In your solitude

seeing silence speaking

Beauty In Subtlety

Under the bright moonlight

cascades reflecting off

the white snow

nocturnal magical

wonderland

For Better, For Worse?

Concrete, steel, glass

Do they inspire?

A greengrocer …

gobbled by modernity

Tall skyscrapers

multi-storied complexes

super megastores

bear testimony

~

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

A little bird

chirps winter’s song

Love’s sweet symphony

Morning has risen

A Sense Of Mystery

I see

calm waters

silence in

the air

a boat

in the middle

of nowhere

critical issues

faced by

both the individual

and wider world.

~

The search

for answers

challenges

confronts

time to consider

these perspectives

aptly portrayed

this contemporary stage

drawing on the audience

senses and thoughts

to connect

to relate

meaningful changes

for a breakthrough?

Thinking Beyond The Box

Innovative

                Futuristic

                                Creative

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 …
