Sitting in a hammock at
Wyuna Bay. 
Peaceful.
Harmonious.
Beautiful.

So many blues and greens
it could make anyone a
poet.

Wyuna Bay
So many
blues
and
greens
I become a poet,
again.

The gentle splashing sounds
of waves and
waves and
waves of insects rhythmically chanting and the
gentle hammock rocking,
hammocking.

Warm air
cool breeze.
The mad sun, everywhere

– interacting –

creating chemical reactions
with green and blue
and flesh
waves rippling progressively
moving,
going nowhere.

The insects repeating the
Same old stuttering buzz
buzz
buzzing
I keep looking at the
blues and greens
and the feelings this
whole tableau
evokes – in me.

Little white splashes
cool breeze through my toes
a new insect starts
clicking
the sun pushes
through the leaves
the feeling is something
like
a clenched and knotted
soul
slowly
starting
to relax.
