A Place For My Tentative Birth

Me looking out at Darwin Nightcliff beach

Rain arrived one night
Like plentiful ripples of rivers
Blessed with watered light
Of a trillion subtle droplets of mirrors
That marked the moon on the earth
And colors of sun gave immaculate  birth
To a dotted rainbow that filled the skies
Brought fire to water,
Turned darkness to day
As I watched the elements together at play
A cause to further explore
A question that calls for more
Is there water in the universe?
And is there a place for my tentative birth?

By Maria Grujicic (Malena)

I loved words. I love to sing them and speak them and even now, I must admit, I have fallen into the joy of writing them.
