Summers in the Heart

There is nothing like summer in Australia especially for the young. I lived in a large country town which the Avon River flowed through. The school holidays, seven weeks then, seemed to last forever. I hope you loved your summers as much as I did. 

Summers in the Heart 

Taking leave of reality
I found the boat at the river. 

A switch in time
And I was back
where the sun never sets in summer. 

Sand water sky
Drifting in the borrowed boat
I found again
the lightness of being.
