Hope


Leeuwin Lighthouse, Western Australia

The Indian and Southern oceans touch

and then follow separate destinies.

Humpback whales roll in the water, slapping

their fins to send out spray and messages.

Seabirds carry nest materials, dropping

little pieces on the way as signposts.

A magpie lands close by and sings; maybe

to my red jumper, maybe to the future.
