Up at six o'clock,
Not knowing what the hell for,
Stretching like a cat.

Sun on the garden
And lime leaves green with envy
Of the cherry tree.

Internal flora
Battle the doc's prescriptions.
New ecosystem.



Ewww…TMI!

But perhaps mount_oregano will see a deeper meaning in it.

Trucks rumble along
But it is otherwise dead.
Quasi-holiday.



The gap between Australia Day and Saturday is always a time of rest and relaxation, except for trucks for some reason.

On the first raindrop
I come awake, wondering
How long it will last.



Somehow I've become drought-obsessed.

Chopper in the dark.
Are some veterans frightened?
And then it flies away..

In 2016
So many famous people
Felt the hand of Death.

Some have survived, though,
So do they wait, fearful, for
2017?

"You have no GP,"
Says the Indian doctor,
But isn't she one?



Two out of three visits to the doctor completed, all to get a figure for my HBA1C which I don't give a poop about anyway. No wonder we can't afford our medical system.

Forlorn cherry tree.
DNA makes you blossom.
Inexorably.

O short-lived summer!
This morning I nearly froze.
WTF?



Running the gamut of punctuation marks…

And now the warm days
Have come to Lake Wendouree
Even the swans sing.
