More than a tree

Clustered Solomonic columns,
Writhing; frozen in fibrous form.

Weatherworn-grey strips fall away;
Presenting rich Indian red.

Serene sentinel stands, solemn;
Confetti-strewn leaves all around.

Tree, Sydney, Australia.

Crossing between

As we walked toward a path sheltered by trees I spied columns of light. A closer look revealed a tunnel under the light rail line. The mosaic tiled walls and path are cleverly lit from the floor.

This is part of one of the routes from Leichhardt to Haberfield, Sydney, Australia.
