Rustle rocks,
the night has murmured to the soul;
Peace cannot rest in the shade for long,
it seeks but a sanctuary for a season,
Eden could not flower forever,
there were other fields waiting
to be found as fertile,
other apples begging to be tasted,
other counties where curiosity
wasn’t a closure to the contract.

Behold this wind, this wild thing,
its tendrils tug so on my flesh.

Bright is the breath
as the path waits to be pressed.

    • Australia is the closest I’ve been, Sydney for three amazing weeks back in 2003, I think. The friendliest place I think I’ve been too! With the wildest and weirdest insects!!! And bats too numerous to fill a belfry!

      • Australia is an amazing place, and huge! Incredible diversity of plants and wildlife, and VERY colourful. On the whole its also very different to NZ. I’m glad you found a friendly welcome there 🙂 🙂
