The Dreamtime Adventures

Her beautiful
Mind explores the dreamtime
Adventures
Of the lost boy in need
This restless year

Inspired
By the ravishing landscape
The tanka poet
Wrestles with the truth
Behind the metaphor

Beyond
The city lights, an
Enduring image
Of a restless soul caught
In the vortex of time

River
Of tears in the school of
Hard knocks…
But where’s the
Promised Land?

She walks
Boldly along the winding
Paths
Like an angel of the light
Nurturing the budding star

Behold
The secret places of
The heart…
Where the rainbow lorikeet sings,
The fragrant roses abound
