Living in Perth we have the lovely wetland trails, all kept beautifully about five minutes from us, This is where I love to walk in the mornings

Walking the wetlands

The sky be filled with laughter
That echo’s through the morn
I walk along this tree lined trail
Some hours after dawn
Loud Kookaburra, in a tree top
Seems to know what life’s about
He knows that it’s all just a dance
Of this he has no doubt.

The sky so blue above my head
Seems to look at me and smile
As feather feet go trekking on
To cover bliss filled miles
As coloured parrots in a tree
Do screech in bold delight
The sun shines down on twisted trees
And the morning shines so bright.

As lake reflecting golden sun
Shines back a million gems
Two Kangaroos, do cross my path
And I just look at them
And wonder at their magic forms
All muscular and grand
As I marvel at the beauty of
This lovely city’s wetlands
