Evening – a villanelle

Evening – Bidjigal Reserve

A pool of stillness grows at close of day,

With silhouetted laughter in the trees

And dreamtime-haunted shadows fill the way.


The evening glows with last retreating ray

That lingers in the sigh of twilight breeze.

A pool of stillness grows at close of day


And as the west succumbs to gentle grey

The sonic, fluttering wings their moment seize,

And dreamtime-haunted shadows fill the way.


Before the gleam of starlight dares to play

Upon the eucalyptus canopies,

A pool of stillness grows at close of day


And in the rustling grass and leaf decay

Strikes up the chirp of evening symphonies,

And dreamtime-haunted shadows fill the way.


So thins the veil ‘tween now and yesterday

As time is held in silent melodies.

A pool of stillness grows at close of day

And dreamtime-haunted shadows fill the way.
