Just a dream

At the heart of my country lies a monolith
Shimmering in the radiant hot transparent light
Ever changing hues, a chameleon at the edge of night, 
Uluru the natives call it, a meeting place, where we can sit

In my dream, I welcome you here, 
Whether your skin is black or brown, yellow or white
For peaceful parley, at this stela desert site
We come together from far and near

Whether your home is a hovel, a castle or cave, 
Derelict or architecturally inspired, an admirable sight
We gather as equals with identical plight
Our globe’s bounty, we must share and save

All children born of mother earth 
Whether we live in suburbia, zareba or inner city height
Different tho we may be we must unite
To save the planet of our birth
