Goodbye Warrandyte


Echoes, whispers, shadows and memories

float along the hallway,

dance at the windows

and waltz in the trees.


The kookaburras follow me

as tears tumble

when I sit

where our goats once wandered

and waited for us,

scrambling up the steps

or standing at the ‘Welcome Home’ gate.


Golden Eyes, tiny Blue Wrens and Wattle Birds

flit and fly amongst the green

pin-pricking the quiet stillness

of this place

which will remain forever

a part of me . . .


Goodbye Warrandyte.

5 February, 2015.
