One Poem by Madeline Coelho

 



Uluru

 

Monolithic

mysterious as life

sapphire sky above

red dust below.

The Dreamtime –

no beginning/ no end

worshipped  by the

Anangu  people

not as Ozymandias’

man-built colossal wreck

now lying in mortal decay

Immortal/eternal

off-limits    a sacred site

in tune with nature

the planet

the seasons
