Bushmans Final Homecoming

the Nulla Nulla passed 
in a delicate arch
this was the final throw
no prey or hunters fate awaits 
at journeys end


end over end
as the battles before
or terrors that lay behind
fell away,
the Nulla Nulla
becomes one
with mother
again 


as this warrior is beaten
with the dust of time, 
and wearing 
his shroud of birth
tribute is paid and offered
in a thousand thanks to Gaia


as a billion 
points of sand
burn his feet
he relishes
his last walkabout,


merging into 
a shimmering mirage
within the dreamtime,
the serpent 
writhes in joyous welcome, 
at his homecoming

    Awesome, Jayne! Love the image of the "warrior beaten with time." But you give us hope in the last verse. Hopefully, in the end we will all find that joyous welcome in heaven. Very good write for my favorites. Love, Carolyn
