THE SCREAM


Somedays even our trees have had enough…I love our ‘screaming tree’ ..I have no idea what caused it to be so distressed…

Could be an environmental statement…could be seeing me putting washing on the line in my undies..

Maybe the girls have been clawing it or the boys cocking a leg on it…

Perhaps it is burdened with the secrets of the gold miners who once tortured the earth here to find their wealth…

Maybe seeing the wildlife vanish amid tree felling has left it in dismay…

How many Cattle have rubbed against it to scratch an itch when the land was left by the miners and handed to the stock for using…

Does it miss being hidden by all the other trees that once many many years ago shrouded it and kept it a secret..

Or is it simply another expression on the face of our land that engages me in wild speculation and day dreamy thoughts?
