Australia...Australia

On Mt.Elza
the riverside Kings Park,
here, I enjoy
the sweeping views of Australia,
the Botanic Garden nearby
offers me a willowy breeze,
near, the gurgling water
as an enchanting spot
is in my heart,
the blue roaming water is flecked,
the horizon with white foam I see
through the sand beds,
the waves shine in moonlit darkness
beyond the gleam of the beach
and the Great Barrier Reef,
my mind moves slowly
between the sea and the sky,
the Kangaroos run around I feel,
the Vast Outback I behold nearby,
the Sydney Opera House
tempts me to rise
makes me realize insignificance of self
and the significance of the gifts
of humans in the world...
Indian and Pacific Oceans
dance around you, I enjoy,
here, I rest on your lap
with an endearing touch of artistic bliss, I experience,
I go slipping out of the world
of racial, linguistic, national... boundaries,
to be free as a white dove
flying over and over...
Canberra beckons me...
Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide...
my mind eschews the days...
aroma of flower petals
blooms in my heart
with you dear,
blossoming flowers and birds
come to me to enjoy
the beauty of life here,
Perth, here I run dears
for the two hundred meters running race
in the World Masters Athletic Meet,
the days of my practice and sweats
here I present as my gift
for you dear ever,
I intuit you
in the charm of the world
to the light of eternal unity and love.
