I Love This Gum Treed Country

Bending together and crossing over
two as ancient as their rings
imaging communion.

Synergistically it sings
louder than
the cockatoo...
a sweeter dew.

Peeling off
their yearly coat
they celebrate their wrinkled skin.

Branching up
their wing tips kiss
entrammelling the heat
and consummating cool
around their feet.

They bear the brunt of elements
of fire and wind
of sun and rain
yet gifting love
within the pain
of temporal things....

their image sings.
