Summer in the Bush.

A dingo circles the homestead,
by the dusty cattle yard -
as dusk rapidly approaches,...

While my old overhead fan
actively circulates tired air,
and,terrorises the mosquitoes,...

Since its so humid at night
and the kookaburras cry
as the tourists energise their flashlights,....

pressure on space,

struggling to keep ones sanity
daily routine sorely tested

Home-work not completed
who"s turn for the ....remote,

what about the garbage,
while night-time falls....

The steady rain seeps into my gutters,
while pigeons screech in the dusty bush,

as doves feed at the crumbling edge -
of the path down to the lake....

The rain drops collide with the surface
of the water, as ripples radiate towards its banks.

The warmth of the sun is now gone,
as my mobile is calling me long -distance,

while the line crackles with low level static
and heavy dark storm clouds suggest....more havic,...?
