The Flame Tree

We bake in our car
as we drive to Far North Queensland.

The changing landscape
seems to move and breathe with us.

An Illawarra Flame Tree
reminds us of an Australian song.

We stop for a while
to feel the way the wind moves


to see the Flame Tree burning.

Susurrous sounds of longing
move through this ancient landscape


we take a photograph to remember.
