Treasure Island

Phil Charters

Special Steps

Far far away
Beyond the lights of a city's guile
Fleecing currency from ones soul
To lie, with the setting sun
Sleep peaceful, dream beautiful
Stand with the sunrise.
Near? It's here
Heaven surrounds, Godless
Yet a soul full of worth
A heart full of happiness
Walk with special steps
Harmonize traditional steps
In the land of the Jawoyn.
Fear? Not here
Yellow petals blue over sky
Grass shades green, dust upon rust
Termites build high rise
Little birds sing
Flirting the breeze
A pictured lullaby
Fear? It's here
King brown slithers mine eyes
Wiggles to grass, gone from sight
Heat beats down on mind
Sucking moisture from one's life
stumble, fall, rise
Clothes perspired,
With body cleansed
Rivers swimming hole.
Beautiful is here
Indelible memories whilst life cascades
As waterfalls in a timeless land
Flowing rivers through canyons deep
Pandanus, Eucalypt
Little wild flowers, colored life
Jatbula, Nitmiluk
Harmonize traditional steps
Walk, special steps
Through one's life.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
