Poem #28 River Red Gums, Lake Hattah

River Red Gums, Lake Hattah

The tree-lined shore
Is reflected in glass –
Smooth water mirroring gums
In their majestic splendour.

Their twisted branches
Reaching out in all directions
Like praying hands
Supplicating the heavens.

Sunset approaches;
Dark green leaves turn
Burnt orange,
Now golden glow.

The final sun-kissed rays
Splash fairy-floss pink
On kingly brows
Ending their day’s reign.
