There are Places – Nyngan

Here, in this land across the mountains and far from the sea, I found sun bleached dry grass plains and a sky of intense azure blue
A wide river with red soil banks of eucalypt and willow providing dappled shade;
dragonflies and midges hovering at midday above languid pools.
Pelicans and screeching black galahs flying into the morning sun
Scorpius rising against an ink black night sky
Solitude and peace in fields of gold beside a quiet dirt road
Here, it will be forever summer.
