Here ... in this land far from the sea, sun bleached dry grass sways beneath a sky of intense azure blue,
Rivers and lakes with red soil banks of eucalypts and willow provide dappled shade,
dragonflies and midges hover at midday above languid pools,
Pelicans and screeching black galahs fly into the morning sun,
Solitude and peace is found in fields of gold beside a quiet dirt road
Here, it will forever be summer.
