salty breeze inhale, exhale paradise pacific blue ocean
flowing river northwest waters eagles nesting noble evergreens
drumbeat calls the course
magical glass slippers spark a spell
faded blue jeans tomboy t-shirt ride the wild wind
borrowed bicycle flies on freedom’s wing
adrift across the seven seas
a hundred seasons of travel
erase the ache of haunted dreams
wandering barefoot two feet walkabout
burnt soil fire red sacred ground alight
smell the scent tall talking eucalyptus
swaying trees aligned in a row
hear the loud cackle kookaburra croon
warming heat burning flames
view the blazing clear cool night
iridescent tapestry towering midnight stars
dreamtime draws tomorrow’s undiscovered journey
another day roadside rest
a billy of black sweetened tea, sip a sigh of relief
circle back around homeward bound
two feet running ease the waring soul
momentary haven wolf howl awakening

  1. Oh, that’s dense with images. I do like the alliterative phrases.
    “tomboy t-shirt ride the wild wind
    borrowed bicycle flies on freedom’s wing”
    That’s nice.

  2. that is just breathtaking!!
    I want to go there…

    I love the way you paced this; it made me feel like I was on that bicycle.

  3. Hello and thanks for visiting. This really is a packed journey, so much to see and hear. But maybe I’ll keep my glass of wine and leave the ‘billy of black sweetened tea’ for you! :0)
