Rounding a corner ...

high across the road
pale wattle branches
laden with blooms,
light in the sudden tunnel
of large, dark eucalypts

When a program set in my birthplace
comes on television —
cooking, architecture, politics —
I don’t say much
but I stop whatever I’m doing
and have a long, long look
at the background scenery.
