Blind Eye

detached
lonely, spaces
drifting, slurring, blaming
quietly turning a blind eye
divorce

Scale

There is nothing quite like the feeling that you are standing on top of the world. 

Atop The Horn, at Mount Buffalo, with its sweeping 360 degree views of the Australian Alps and plateaus, the vastness and space make you feel small and insignificant. It is an exhilarating sensation to swivel and view the magnificent scale of the Mount Buffalo National Park spread out before you.

At 1,723 metres elevation, The Horn is the highest point in the Mount Buffalo National Park, on the western side of the Victorian Alps.

Poetry by Sarah, Tanka

No More

Her only comfort,
as the rain falls around her,
– a canopy’s space.
She dreams of a time to come,
when the tears will flow no more.
