Across Dingo Tracks

Written by: Jayne Eggins

my heart
weeps of this lifetime
we shared, and as 
no repetition or Déjà vu
can follow


I watch 
each memory pass
and my chest aches,
with all the smiling faces
whose love, 
is lifting you on your way 


my soul is forever 
sealed in the blood 
that reared and pressed me
against the breast
of the Canis lupus dingo


I now walk alone 
a white speck,
on red dust 


and my howl
rises to echo, 
the night
