A stirring from cavernous 
Subterranean layers
Within me release
Seismic activity
Barely touches
The needle

Blossoming upwards
Blissful pockets
Of breath rising
Hinterland well spring

It bursts through
Surface though
No one hears
Air shifts feathers
For now
Lake Dobson, Mt Field National Park, Tasmania

Summer mosaic

Fingers like spindles
Weaving morning webs
Bejewelled with dew drops
Round heavenly scent

Sight show stopping
Colour shot eye
Strange ancient landscape
Evokes belated sigh

As burdens unleash
Quicken bated breath
Watch slow blooming
Patience to test

Reluctant to shine
Unsure of herself
Summer returning
Along the tarn shelf

Scars of wind whipped
Winters now sealed
Carvings of glacial
Era revealed

Peeping past curtains
Mist fringed birdsong
Cabins sleeping in
Until nights grow long

Longing for rare
Shot of red on horizon
Summer mosaic elated
Coat of bloom surprising
Tasmanian Waratah, Telopea truncata, Mt Field National Park
