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.
