Come The Good Spring Of Every Thing

"Do a favor. 
The soul's work shines like gold."
- Rumi

These golden wildflowers
 have gone now.
But, in truth, 
the memory, 
the beauty
 and the glory of them
will flourish within 
the heart of the bush-walker.

A Heron, Water-hens, A Crane and A Pelican

Today was inspiring here by the lower lake.
I saw a heron and water-hens,
and a single crane
bringing some stillness.
Then wonder of wonders,
across the water, there was a Pelican!

Just to walk again was a blessed event.
It has been two months since the forest fires.
So many trees are gone.
But little Bob was happy
doing the circuit trail
and being close to the waters edge.

A blue-gum with silver leaves
what a delight to see.

So I leave space
for the poetry is visual
at this moment...

It is 22-02-2020

What a peaceful morning.
I feel still.

Meeting The New

"Now we know
that we will
 never lose the way again.
The song
 begins again
 which had been
  stopped only an instant,
though it seems to be
unsung forever"

Your Playful Spirit Sings

What I see
when I look at you
is goodness,
brilliance and joy.
 the sands of time,
 the lands we have seen,
expansive skies or blossom trees
your song still sings silently.

Graceful Light

My poet's heart
is lost for words,
two pink Galahs do greet me.

This bright morning light
on the trees
truly does delight me.

I am a happy witness
so I do trust
you see through me.

Believing All There Is To See

Old forest new growth
is a joy to see.
On this calm and sunny day
 some tender leaves
are softly shining
on blackened trees.


Receiving Grace

 Summer rain came for a day.

Open to receive the gifts
and embrace this Grace.

In The Glowing

It seems chaos leads me
 to be continually
 letting go.
  So I certainly know
 I grow 
in a field of Grace.
