Saplings

Fred Williams Saplings at Solo Vale

To see through

the eucalyptus haze,

to peer between

the repetition of bold lines

to the embedded shades

of the understory

 

to see the melding of hues

in a cacophony of colour

 

Khaki canopy atops

this replication of slim trunks

 

This messy scrub

in stark contrast

to colonial pictorials,

portrayed in terms of currency

rather than a European lens

 

The abstraction

of audacious saplings

and powerful colouration

 

Here is the essence

of our harsh environment,
