Australia

Like a work just started
and left unfinished
In the wake of a cataclysm
Australia waits

Keep the palette
Until the painter arrives
Who painted
Australia

Keep the pigments, the marrow
Bound up by bone
In cavities undiscovered
In Australia

Keep the handles of palette knives
From being eroded, rusted
By the tourists and travellers
Swarming across Australia

Sing to your children
Of Dreamtime, dreamland
Where the creator once lived
In Australia

Sing to your children
Of a time to come
When work will be done
Completed, in Australia

I am interested in multimedia work: songwriting, art, and creative writing. I have been involved also in theatre and music performances.
