Everything is Sky (part 2)

                   (Day Two: Roma to Carnarvon Gorge)

a black snake pulls
heat from the bitumen

*

Out here, grass flowers red
and roos line the road
their ribs sprung open.

We drive, smiling
in the sun’s early gravity
cattle grids flooding our heads
with thought’s rhythm.

*

At Baloon Cave
a cluster of ancient
handprints reminds me
of the impression we make.

*

two butterflies circle
each other
in the heat of love

*

Late afternoon breeze brings comfort to us.
I can feel in the dragonflies’  crimson vibrations the coming storm.
