and a few words from my Mum and Dad in a book of my favourite Australian poet

A journey in water

Sunday Stills: #Water in the Details

My second contribution for water in the details.

The shapes and colours at the waters edge

The floods that inundate the nearby town

The water rages over the bridge near my place during flood times

The Bottlebrush trees bend with the flow and are used to the rushing water

As the water rushes downstream to be greeted by the bridge

Grafton Bridge over the Clarence River

The sunset on the waves change the water to unfamiliar colours

Water drops on flowers trickle down the stamens to feed the roots below

Or burst from a fountain in a showy splendor

Or sit on a succulent silently sliding

Reflecting the background while waiting to fall

Being captured by a spiders web like pearls awaiting to adorn a womans neck

Giving a glimpse of the world in a raindrop

Watching a White-faced Heron stroll among the rivers rocks looking for lunch can be mesmerising and calming beside the river
