The Light in Fawkner Park

(Photo from unknown source)

In 2012 I was lucky enough to be driving an old friendly, lost-license roof plumber to work and ended up in Melbourne's Fawkner lush-Park for a few weeks. My time there for study and poetry could not have been more blissful, meditative, big dream, all with its dreaming hobos, playful children, motivated exercisers, and rushing, funny-greedy- weird business people. So, this beat poem is about talking to the surrounding beings and focussing on the trees and their consciousness. About feeling like an enemy to them, an enemy that has caused all their pain. And yet its also about the dialog between nature and humanity, navigating past this pain to true consciousness, mediating with love, understanding and awareness, an going with this all together...   

(apologies for the ad at the end, bloomin good station though...)
