vast is the landscape
clear the mind
clear new year
vast as the ocean
take some time

The images are from the top :
- Looking out from Red Rock, an extinct volcano near Colac in the Western Districts of Victoria. From here one can see a number of other extinct volcanos that together make up the largest volcanic plain in the world, (possibly). This region is geologically recent in terms of volcanic activity but on-one talks about this fact. Stimulating incentive to formulating haiku.
- That is me standing on the beach north of Bicheno on the central east coast of beautiful Tasmania, the amazing island state of Australia. If you want to clear your mind of dross spend a couple of weeks in Tasmania, better still live there.
- Another beautiful sunset from the cliffs at Black Rock two nights ago on 6th January. No better place to think about New Year resolutions, that is think about them!
nothing can move this
oldest bridge in the land
at peace in autumn
The Richmond Bridge at Richmond just outside Hobart Tasmania Australia is the oldest constructed bridge in the country. A legacy of convict labour this bridge and many other beautiful early nineteenth century Georgian architectural beauties are beautiful reminders of a brutal colonial history.

I have seen this cloud
drifting in my past somewhere
we will meet again
Have you ever looked up in the sky and watched a cloud floating along playing the air, forming and evaporating only to be created again in another place. The water cycle is a fascinating natural event and we are all dependant on it for our existence. If only the climate change denying fools in Australia and elsewhere would understand this.
This cloud was snapped from the car on the Campbelltown to Swansea road in midland Tasmania.
Here it is again in
Tarneit near Melbourne Australia, and again
near Bicheno in Tasmania where you could almost land a Jumbo Jet on the beaches, and again
on the beautiful island of Moorea in French Polynesia, and in
Black Rock a suburb of Melbourne Australia where every evening the sky, sea , sun and often clouds play with your emotions .
So look up into the sky and find your cloud then look for it when the need comes to you forever after…………….
wild storms rip and tear
tangled refuse on the beach
food of the future
Around Easter 2004 wild storms along the east coast of Tasmania left piles of kelp along beaches near Swansea. There is a growing kelp/seaweed economy in Tasmania, one reason being the right growing conditions and the clean waters down along the east coast.
