River Stilts

cropped-river-run.jpgRiver Stilts

Listening to a lone plane pass above

Where the blue breaks through the leaves

Sounds of a Mopoke quell the dense air

To a new winter’s day waking

I thought I’d make for the river

Where the houses stand tall in summer’s floods

For I can remember living there

Sitting at the back door watching the water run

Something about breathing, in a house on rushing sea

Waving to boats as they ferry food

These good people for they come and they go

Sharing within our stilted community

All here riding the floods and the tides

Till time comes to clean up once again.
