Be Brave

bee on magnolia

Native bee on a Magnolia

 

Homeless

without direction

 

Feeling distant with a surrounding barrier

invisible to those that cross

 

Wounded

without control

knocked out

for surrender

to the passion

that leads to destruction

 

Guilty of mistakes

that lead to fateful fears and tears

 

Dreams shattered

 

Lives  connected

with soulful messages

to the collective

 

When the views of the population change the views of management change

Systems will change

Agreements can be made

Be brave

Brindabella range, Canberra iIMG_0504.jpg

Brindabella ranges – bordering new South wales and Canberra, ACT, Australia

Weighed down by environmental influences

Mother earth descends

Facing the edge of the precipice

Where the  overhanging face will be paralysed

Mother earth cries

The influence of institutional power

regulating a floating future

Mother earth dies

With the David and Goliath contest

Between  sub-alpine snow gums surviving frozen wastelands

And political prowess

Determining future generational growth

Mother earth is barren

 

The Esplanade

Portsea before the storm 17.11.2017.jpg

Portsea, Victoria, Australia, 2018

The execution of the performance left little to desire

Shape shifting

Coloured profiles

Slowly swept across from the west

Tracing a map of the shoreline

The light

Resembling  a many fingered hand

Fleetingly

Caressing a forgotten face

With a shadow of fear
