Welcome – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

Trip – Word of the Day


Photo: Ngaanyatjarra (Giles) Western Australia



The occasional breeze flits
and plays with the leaves and grasses and
a symphony erupts complimented by the chorale
of honeyeaters, fantails and wood swallows and the like
who sing me a welcome to country.

  4. the color of the soil is beautiful. They need to make a crayon that color for me. When I see this it reminds me of the book I read about the woman who crossed the Australian desert. Beautiful but could be dangerous if you get stranded in it.
