Poetry

 

elementary order of things

(Inspired in 2003 by Australasian aborigines requesting the sacred bones of their shared ancestors
be returned from a depository in an English museum to their ancestral land)

dreamtime sees
no time at all
all time as one
dancing in circle
round blazing bush fire
air blown down wood
in circular breathing
intoning meaning
from you to me
to you unborn
to you in earth
at home
from me
to you
no end
and no beginning

no need for more
than this

listen to the dawn
when great snake river
gods made sacred life
from water
to swim
to crawl on earth
on four on two
to fly and leap
from trees singing
in the wind singing
through grasses
through sand and stone
in the land
where time began

for those who can listen

man is co-existent
one in
body spirit
life death

time timelessness

only listen
