My country

My country is peaceful,

it’s like sitting in the midst of a cloud of feathers.

A smooth, silent breeze surrounds me.

I look up and see the black cockatoos

swimming in the sky

like a pod of whales.

The pink and grey blanket of galahs

covers the oval beneath

I wish the world can be like my home and

as smooth and peaceful as a river rock.

Floating down stream and just sitting peacefully

in the water.
