Grand Gums Deniliquin 2016

Grand Gums Deniliquin Lagoon 2014
First words that comes to mind
gnarly weather-beaten, aged broken
survivors, fixed steadfast, unbending
Peaceful reflection branched blue sky
Younger me a seat would find
In boughs rightangled supported

Hollowed havens for possums,
cockatoos, raucous sunset’s coming
Cacophony grows. Gums unmoved
Stand sentinel to the lagoon
Kangaroos thirsty drink
Stillness pervades the eventide

Isabel Baker At Deni-car-otel


river red gums along lagoon at deniliquin
