Poetry at The Pub

Newcastle NSW




The songs of mother earth flow deep
and resonant from the depths
of the sea to above the jet
stream clouds. As ancient as
starlight there is a bond
that lives within the cells
that ties mother to child
and is as unshakeable as
mountains. The origins of life
awaken with each new birth
and echo into the corridors
of time and beyond the
known, beyond the wisdom
of three dimensions to
travel through the cosmos.
Only the tangible touch of
a mother’s caress erases
difference and with a sense
of inner knowing transcends
the barrier of species.
