One Love

Shimmering leaves
under a black velvet sky
Whispered moonlight
and twinkles
of infinite worlds
Jubilant in their
galaxial bling

We sit on the huge tree roots
of Moreton Bay Figs
untouched for a hundred years
Their canopies
towering over us
A serene presence
of safety and comfort
in the gentle night air

We’re waiting
for the music to begin again
For the ambient quiet
to be shattered
by the sounds
of Boogie Knights
As they strut the stage
pumping and grinding
the crowd
Into a frenetic state

We trust
in the simple truth
of one love
in this peace filled land
And we’re satisfied
in our heart of hearts
that all is possible
as all cultures come together
to share
in song and dance
food and laughter
joy and celebration

of life
of love
of peace

Blessed Be

Artist's Description

*Have you heard of Womad?

Womad stands for World of Music, Arts and Dance Festival we have one here every year…it is a gorgeous event, where people from all over the world, come to share their music, dance and art…

it’s like a big hippy fest, where we all chill out in a huge treed park, day and night, for four straight days…rolling around in the grass, under the trees and stars, listening to music is a balm to the soul…

there is never any trouble, always much fun, colour, dance and smiles…they are held all over the world…just once in your life you have to go to one…you’ll never be the same…

I’ve been to many…lucky me…
ps I was there this week ;-)*

I wrote this poem as a response to a challenge by AnniG who wrote Twilight Moments and inspired us to write more…there are other poets linked to this page.

For Pink Panther magazine:
feminism in nature is equality and empowerment for all, what better place than here…
