Deeper

Encircle – RDP 77

Looking eastward, the sun rises at Elachbutting Rock.

 

Deeper

Then,
the urgency to hold,
the knowing look.
Escaping long interrogations.
Obligations hidden
as we watched the moon ascend.
We arrested time,
fainted
and marvelled that it was us.
There’s no urgency now,
the seed a flower,
love encircled,
concentric.
our hearts deeply immersed.

Sussurous

Also spelt – sussurus, sussurrous.

The trail skirts the rock at Elachbutting Nature Reserve.

Nature’s Galleries

Plumes of breath
as warmth greets chill air.
Leaving the cocoon,
I embrace the moment,
solace in the billy.

The sun catches up and,
peaty mounds are steaming.
And despite the damp,
leaves crackle underfoot,
such is the nature of eucalypts.

The haunting sound of sheoaks
rustling in the breeze,
entwining as lovers.
Grasses faintly whipping,
softly sweeping.

The trail fills my nostrils,
woos my ears and delights my eyes.
Birdsong,
that sensual dawn symphony,
joy for the expectant soul.

Soft drizzle a bejewelled gossamer.
captivated, I move along,
one gallery to the next.
A masterpiece on every side,
unseen, curators scuttling along.

Daily Prompt: Jangle

Mr Bo Jangles … to which I always wanted to retort – Does he?

One of the more pleasant jangles for me is the campfire bell – usually a metal ring or tube to alert everyone that food is served. This one made by Geoff which we used at Elachbutting Rock one year. Worked a treat.

While we never used them at home on the farm, we had a collection of cow bells that would do the same job.

Old faithful, my tent, tied and tethered, secure as always once erected. Veteran of 20 ventures, especially the Bibbulmun Track. On this occasion (one of many) we’re at Elachbutting Rock campsite (north of Bonnie Rock) enjoying the beauty.
