Everything is Sky (part 4)

                   (Day Four: Carnarvon Gorge, Boolimba Bluff)
Those dark moments before dawn
standing by the river, its skin like
the wrong side of satin sheets.


wrens settle like rain on the tree fern


Five hundred stairs up Boolimba Bluff
the kookaburras start laughing.

As we reach the plateau, a wedge-tail cuts
through the sky, polished as opal.
