What is this fathomless and surging Ocean? Can you hear it in the flooding rivers and creeks? Brisbane is upturned. Can you see it in the tears of hiding children in tunnels of Ukraine A child sings her nation and everyone knows her name for a moment. Can you touch its life vein when tears are thickened from all that threatens life? Surging trouble, deeper, harsher, cutting into skin and bone removing every comfort of home every wall, door, window streetscapes scarred. Where is this feeling that just nearby are loved ones ? Sending them letter like prayers framed by the eternal postman can I wish reach partake take deep breaths ... Pause behold ... astonishment Feel bounty rush closer glorious... (c) June Perkins words and image, inspired by the quotation.
