can you feel love through the soles of your feet?

for you at home

an invitation:

take as half hour stroll

by the Kwoorabup

between bridge in town

&

footbridge near the inlet

keep an eye out for snakes

if things are warming up

take time to touch skin

of ancient paperbarks along the way

watch birds fish

& ski into land on water

listen to rustling sedges at edges

imagine

beneath this path

footprints all the way from

60,000 years ago to now

when you almost reach the bridge

at the far end of this long river walk

the last five steps you take

measures the fraction of this journey

that represents the fraction of time

that white feet have also

walked this way

this is long loved land

beneath our feet

&

long may love live here

for many generations to come
