Primordial

A thin call echoes in silence

It is sweet in its asking

The listener

folded in memories of primordial time

a quiet wetland after rainfall

lunar mirrors over shallow lakes

singing for another to answer

It is a faith of ages

A bedrock of tolerance

for hissing freeways

ears behind brick and tin


The listener wonders what it is

not currawong or magpies of spring

nor stone curlews... masked plover among blades of winter grass?

Singular unequivocal to the eavesdropper on the edge of dream

Purpose full to be heard

Aware enough to remain unseen
