This lovely poem is the work of Miriam Louisa and can be found on her blog along with many other equally beautiful pieces

echoes from emptiness

 

Echoes from Emptiness: Jacarandas, Kiels Mountain, Queensland

 

a violet shower cascades
from the tops of the jacarandas

the kookaburras are shaking the canopy,
breakfasting with glee

what can you say about a giggling tree
a smiling cloudless cerulean sky
and a bunch of birds
with beaks-full of cackle?

just this:

emptiness is fulsome and fabulous
and shaking with laughter

while we, on our tinder-dry mountain
sniff the whiff of early bushfires
and wish it would wet itself soon
