100 Days Project

Willie: What It Is To Ponder

Every day there are opportunities to ponder. So often life gets in the way to ponder with meaning. For the 100 days of this project I will take time out every day to reflect on those ponder-able moments. I will attempt to articulate my 'ponderings' through the use of poetry. Risky but fun. Can I actually write poetry? Here we go...

How can so much water
fall from the sky above.
Last night it started pooling,
this morning floods flow by.

The stock are up on high ground,
the paddocks are awash.
The rivers are fair flowing
taking all things in its path.

And now the sun is shining,
a rainbow up above.
It’s beautiful to look at,
momentarily the flooding forgot.

Nature wins every time,
we surely must obey.
Whatever nature throws at us
‘cos that is just the way.

Day 15:

Nature Wins Every Time
