Morning Bay – Serpentine Rock

Stand still on the banks of the Hawkesbury River.
Stand still and let them
vanish around the bend.
Can you feel yourself
leaning away from the path?
This is your chance
to surrender, to breathe
and abandon the trail.
Slip through the fence
and scamper across the rocks.
Traverse through blades of grass.
Open your arms.
Awaken your senses and
creative knowledge will find you,
and you will understand
why movement feeds
your imagination.
