Ferry Crossing

Iguana eyes
Catch ecstatic glow
Of pale blue
Meteorite shower.

Serenading the harmonic
Under current
Of the heart beat
Reverberating surf.

Pelicans dance
On the shifting delicate patterns
Of storm tossed ocean,

Blown in on passive tides
From mythical islands and lost worlds
Submerged beneath vanished Atlantis.

Forked tongue lightening
Electric neon blue
Eclipse of sky scrape sky line.

Feet up
Relax mode
Gaze straight
Into the eye of the needle
While crazed yachtsmen
Zigzag, tack and project dreamtime mirages
Across old world new world
Iron horse and iron harbour bridge.

Poem Extracts

"Sun dust street reverberate to
Man child beating out fossilized rhythms
In ragged harmony with
Accordion snake skin waist coat
Mexican cowboy vocals."
