Adrift (repost)

Perched on mountain in high summer swelt,
restless for adventure to exercise youthful minds.
Tugging adults away from mundane pursuits ,
to brave the goat track that masqueraded as a road .

Bucked and jolted in Toyota nonchalance we descended,
to riverine groove , deep in the throat of ancient gorge.
Tiny creeks’ offerings… magical as vast ocean ,
as relative scale expanded proportions honourably.

Bursting from stifling metal confines , dust filmed and melted,
finding soft and cool landing as the now quiet beast released .
Into another world, gentling , in microclimate of lush crook,
where gin clear water called to the forgotten water nymph in me.

Hiding ….waiting…..remembering.

Boulder strewn meanderings invited tender toes dip,
as the movement of rainforests tears , welling to brimful, cascaded generously.
Earths glittering gems long ago proffered , polished by hidden jewellers watery hand,laid out on rustic silicon crib , embedded exquisitely to answer the stars questions of worth.

I feel like a mermaid princess as I step tentatively , humbled by such a beautiful carpet,as water takes my body and renders it weightless ,
I glide to source once more.
Silken water caressing nubile flesh , calming and cooling and giving relief ,
from pent up summers teenage tension expelled on the whisper of a moist sigh.
I close my eyes and give myself up .

Cradled …waiting….remembering.

Caught in the earths pulse , merging with my tomorrows,
adrift on the tide of my dreaming.
