Falling plum blossoms
Safe in corners of my mind
For a winters day

 

Evenings last rays
Sunbeams glide on golden air
Sprinklings of sequins

 

Moaning noonday wind
Scaring trees and whipping rocks
Clouds squeal with delight

 

Quiescent lakeside
Only a gentle breeze,but
there’s sand in my paint

 

Last light of the sun
Faeries inhabit the dusk
Sylphs ride floating mists

 

Storm clouds gathering
On such a warm summers day
Forgot the brolly

 

Carried on the breeze
Whispered midsummer tree songs
Basking in sunlight

 

Billowing white clouds
Consorting with sunburnt hills
Laughing summer breeze

 

Winter trees grow clouds
Feeling so very alone
And then – the rabbit

 

December morning
Sunshine falls on round hay bales
Song of a magpie

 

In a secret place
Beholden to nobody
Trees and clouds play games

 

Wondrous silver orb
Blue air sings pearly moon songs
Bewitching Goddess

 

Amaranthine sky
Dreams wander through clouds of rose
And stay for the night

 

Dancing trees in pink
Hills don their best ochre robes
Natures woodland ball

 

A south wind groans low
Snow moon peeps through lilac clouds
Chill indigo air

 

Dreamers paradise
A sprites song serenades trees
Nightfall blows a kiss

 

Shimmer shine water
Clouds admire their reflections
Falling autumn leaves

 

Sunburnt grass sighs now
Can an ochre life turn green?
The chameleon smiles

 

Wandering through fields
Pink grasses waving to me
Rolling hills and clouds

 

Peaceful country road
A burst of golden yellow
Happy wattle songs

 

So close to the heart
These rocky grassy woodlands
Kestrels hover high

 

Morning winter mist
Clouds playing tag with water
Blanket of silence

 

Last years memories
Wandering through my sketchbook
Opaque moonstone sky

 

Sea of sapphire blue
Vaporous clouds play with gulls
Bare feet caress sand

 

Storm clouds gathering
I call with the currawongs
Such a long dry spell

 

Yellow sunset blaze
The winding road leading home
Walking on charm stones

 

A gaggle of geese
Brushes trying to compete
White melts into green

 

Deep brooding water
Whispering incantations
Drawing down the moon

 

A long time ago
There was a place by the sea
Memories linger

 

Approaching the pond
Plop – A stone skims the surface
The laughter of children

 

Rain clouds over water
Bouncing splashing sprinkle-spray
Droplets falling fast

 

Leaves float on water
Thousands of little canoes
Elves shriek ship ahoy

 

Sky is so modest
She draws her blind for nights kiss
Pearly pond blushes

 

Winter white moonbeams
Murmur sun-pink lullabies
Misty eventide

 

Fragrant petrichor
Summer has been way too long
Poor brown scorched ground

 

Serpentine sky road
Mystery trail to somewhere
Walking into clouds

 

Bang crash thunderbolt
Raindrops make love to trees
Candlelight tonight

 

Just before sunset
The faeries came with glamor
And we became lost

 

High up in a branch
Black as pitch and harsh of voice
Crow sings his bleak song

 

Sunset on the plains
Sky of rose, blue and yellow
Lonely plover calls

 

Periwinkle clouds
Shimmer shine falls on water
Days end by the lake

 

Gay dancing wheat fields
Whispering the old secrets
Trees don’t give a  jot

 

Warm hazy evening
Sprites play music from the spheres
Faeries spread glamor

 

An azure surprise
Dancing trees with trembling leaves
And then the water

 

Peaceful country road
Eucalypts dance to birdsong
Zephyrs waltz with leaves

 

Wandering through dreams
Blue mountains and timeless sky
Blinded by the light
