I acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the Land, on which I live and work. I pay respect to the unique cultural & spiritual relationships the first Australian people had/have and will have to the land, waters and sea.

If A Tree Could Wander

July 13, 2017

Oh, if a tree could wander
and move with foot and wings!
It would not suffer the axe blows
and not the pain of saws! 

For would the sun not wander
away in every night ?
How could at ev'ry morning
the world be lighted up? 

And if the ocean's water
would not rise to the sky,
How would the plants be quickened
by streams and gentle rain? 

The drop that left its homeland,
the sea, and then returned ?
It found an oyster waiting
and grew into a pearl. 

You lack a foot to travel?
Then journey into yourself!
And like a mine of rubies
receive the sunbeams? print! 

Out of yourself ? such a journey
will lead you to your self,
It leads to transformation
of dust into pure gold!
