Friends – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon


Photo: Wandoo tress at Mt. Observation, Mundaring, W.A. just on the boundary between Northam and York. This forms part of the Wandoo National Park and forest reserve in the Darling Range.



The Wandoo tree touched me,
it sent a leaf
which spiralled from so high,
slowly descending
on the warm air
and finally,
it caressed my cheek,
we were hardly close before
but in that moment
there was a knowing and
the Wandoo tree and I were friends.
