Spring Symphony

Spring symphony - R&R Ramblings

At the splendour of springtimes dawn,

like watching fragile meadow grass shift

his fingers stroked her sun-kissed skin.

Admiring the luxury of layers & subtlety in shading,

she was the rarity in the rising of an unearthed gem.

So scarce a find amongst a thorned forest Continue reading “Spring Symphony”

Time

Time - R&R Ramblings

The cold floor beneath her feet was invigorating as she skipped with the taste of freedom coursing through her veins. With one step after the other, her smile grew wider. The scents of sweet fresh air, the view of trees and flowers in the garden were brimming with life and colour. So unlike the flowers she’d watched wither away, and now no longer needed.

She waved to the nurses at the counter. Giggled at the cheeky orderlies who brought Continue reading “Time”

Unpredicted

Unpredicted - RuralRomanticRamblings.com

Heels echoed on the cool tiles amplified by the corridor’s walls. Watery mud created a snail trail by her once-white lace train, as petals from her strangled bouquet fell like Autumn attacks the trees. Make-up smeared like Continue reading “Unpredicted”

A Floral Front

He sniffed, wiped his nose on the cuff of his gloved hands that held the sharp snips he used to trim the stem on the thornless white rose. “Please feel free to browse.” His red eyes wandered over the slim build of the bottle blonde screwing up her nose at his art. “Can’t find anything to suit?”

“I want different.” She popped her littlest fingernail into her mouth and teethed on its edge like a termite on timber.

“Of course, you do.” We all do. He sniffed, wiped beads of perspiration from his brow, and eyed the clock’s countdown.

“So, any tips?” Continue reading “A Floral Front”

Wondrous Weeds

White flowers, the size of a freckle sun-kissing the skin, scatter like dots amongst the green carpet that lay beside the red-dirt trail. Amongst them, Continue reading “Wondrous Weeds”

The Nature Show

water lily 3 (1 of 1)My thongs sink slightly towards the gravelly edge of a red muddy beach, where the bitumen road disappears under the floodplain giving life to this one red-dust riddled land. The water mirrors the early morning’s azure blue sky, casting the illusion of an inland sea saturated wilderness. Where, like a tattered crochet blanket, contrasting plates of green water lilies and beads of white, pink and purple flower heads open to greet the sun’s new day.

The scene so serene at first glance. But on closer inspection – chaotic.

Imagine a musical Broadway production going through its final preparations before the show begins. Showgirls, dashing between costume changes are the bright colourful Rainbow Lorikeets and Ring-necked Parrots darting across the water. Egrets stretch their legs like perfectly poised ballet dancers. And looking every bit the musical Conductor overseeing his orchestra in a rich navy plumage is the statuesque Jabiru wading on the water’s edge.  The low humming fine-tuning of instruments are the assorted bugs and beetles, and the Choir warms individual choruses via differing fly-by flocks. Lastly, the hidden stage technicians lurk beneath the water, being the Crocodiles, Barramundi and long-neck turtles silently directing stage props and actors to their places.

With a flick of my fishing lure into the water where the road disappears into this tropical oasis that only occurs a few months of the year, I watch and wait until… ‘Show Time’.
