Drive Home Through Western Victoria Boxing Day

Image result for western victoria landscapeRain,

sweet coolness,

reprieve from the heat,

the silent pounding oppression

Moisture now makes its stamp,

droplets coalesce,

blot the terrain,

drip refreshingly

Steam rises from hot earth

and with it,

eucalyptus essence,

from dampened gum tree elders,

effervescence on the air

Crimson rosellas

on road verge,

commas of feathered beauty

The urban spindle unravels,

rolls away through highways

and country roads,

to come to rest

in bucolic silence

Breathe deep

inhale this fragrance

suck in the goodness
