Surviving the Change (Haiku)

Surviving the change
A long journey of uncertainty
Whispers of hope.

A year of lucky breaks!
Is there a big sting in the tale?
That’s the question.

Lost in paradise
Or poverty in the midst of plenty;
Unbearable sadness of being!

Dream of harmony
But help is needed in all directions
Where’s the love?

By the Murray River,
They sat in profound silence;
Thinking of home.

The spring moonlight
Brings hope for a better life;
Calming the restless!

Rising to the challenge,
A new spirit in the neighbourhood
Wrestles with the future.

Love and laughter
In the secret garden,
Paradise found.
