BETWEEN OUYEN AND HOPETOUN

a poem by Lee Emmett, Australia - poetry writer, author, poet

between Ouyen and Hopetoun
under wide Mallee sky
cut in two by jet trail
Easter traffic passes by

low-growing scrub
lines sides of road
grey stubble in paddocks
after crops mowed

wispy white cloud
etchings up high
magificent wedge-tail eagle
wings wide-spread to fly

golden gazanias
grow at brink of town
magpie pecks soil and
small rocks white-brown

boats and caravans
towed by four-wheel drives
people head for Murray
take rest from their lives
