Salt Lake Ditty

Kaleidoscope of colours

When Dreaming Time became reality,
The Dreamers wept,
mourning lost immortality
And yet …

With life there came a here, and there,
and glorious space between —
Mountains high, valleys low
colours never seen!

And tho’ the peaceful void was mourned —
the gift of life rejoiced,
First People found themselves reborn
with heart, and mind, and voice.

Joy flowed free from eyes awake —
a salty river stream
that twisted, turned, then formed a lake
kaleidoscope of dreams!



We are living in the digital world, covered in the autonomous aspects & tracked motions of life. Yet, somehow we are losing some critical elements. Keyboards, touchpads, & speech-to-text are there, but we believe that handwritten words on paper is still meaningful to some poets.
