Rain in Blackall

               for Sally

We stand together, our yellow coats
a welcome contribution to the outback
palette of red earth and Mitchell Grass.

Two people immersed in the descending
chords of rain; one having the time of her life.

  1. did you have lifeboat hats on too?
    it’s like a photograph!

  2. Sounds as if you weren’t having a good time in the outback. 😉

  3. its hard to say what this poem did, but i felt a childlike wonder contrasted with a somber feeling
    and liked it a lot

  4. A fun poem – simple and lovely 🙂 Did you mean to spell palatte like that?
