windows/eternal rays

Yesterday I woke up in a field. The sun was showering me with its rays, it was early and already stinkin’ hot.

I sat on a boulder overlooking the infinite golden landscape littered with gum trees - their branches were filled with magpies and white cockatoo’s singing at the top of their lungs. A duet perhaps? Serenading the new day or heckling each other and the weird looking city slicker perched below them.

It felt good to be home.

Home in the country away from my home in the city, on the road constantly moving constantly evolving home.

We swam beneath the recently flooded Turpin Falls. The water was flowing so hard and fast that the river below had become a kid’s ultimate fantasy- a massive bubble bath. Though the surging current that thrashed against the rocks destroyed this dream like Charles Manson and the dreamy visions of the late 60’s.

We perched ourselves on some safe rocks beneath the waters surface and carried on like children playing in the bubbles.

a fair bloody innings

3 days
3 beaches
eternal waves
sweet times

the sets are rolling in
the coast line haze
intermingles cliff and ocean
no definitive line
the birds are singing for sundown
two kangaroos graze
on the grass beside me
the sounds of their meal
intermingles bird and sea
i sit overlooking
this expanse of ocean
Australian flora and contemplate
the freckles i have gained
the waves i have surfed
as my beer rolls
down the hill
