Bush poetry for the trip

storm brewing lake hawthornLeaves toasted coffee brown
Lay jumbled upon the ground

Stems that snap crackle with twigs and branches on top
Twinges of green peak out life begin to stop.

Humming winds, breezes shimmer shake branches up high
Break tinder burnish brown branches, green, and dry

Strong white opaque shreds of peeling layers of bark
Twisting, twirling, and sliding down to die on ground
Decomposing; becoming gnarled and dark.

Animals, miniscule and small create viable worlds.
Hiding, evolving, entry under a leaf curled.

Sky shifting shadowing change blue upon high
‘Til darkness falls then all is quiet

Screams high pitch, blood curdle child like
Foxes meander undercover of the pitch blue-black night

Large eyes of owl traverse the moonlight

Coral pink, tangerine, and yellow tinges break open the sky
A new day begins to the currawong mournful cry

Magpie, Kookaburras songs crescendo through breaking light
Herald the dawning new day from night

Crystal icy dew drops melt; as green leaves turn coffee brown
Falling, dry, slowly, parachute style onto rusty earth brown ground.

About Louise

I am a very young 52 year old. Like my star sign I am a typical Capricorn - tenacious, loyal, determined, honest, open minded, and dry sense of humour. I believe in astrology, intuition, spiritual matters and have a very healthy respect for all Buddhism. MY power number is 9. I was born at the end of a Dragon year. I am a very proud 5th generation Australian. I love to cook, read prolifically, write, and enjoy nature with all its wonderment. I love to cook especially for those who appreciate it. Like a great bottle of wine I am getting oh so much better with age. I have a natural curiosity and am constantly asking questions. I like to write and I wish I had become a librarian or researcher. Blogs help me get a "REAL FEEL" of what makes the world tick. Thank you every one for sharing.
