AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

Peace, Relaxation, Spirituality and Kitaro

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ My Kitaro CD's.
Kitaro has been my favourite musician for many years.
He is the cooling calm for my mind and the gym workout for my soul.
Monday Poetry Potluck ~ Peace, Relaxation and Spirituality
NOTE: The following poem is an experimental journey through the haunting, peaceful, relaxing, spiritual world of Kitaro's music.
The words in blue are some of his titles.
The poem links them together.

Eternal Spring of
Cosmic Energy
Moonlight on the
Shimmering Horizon
awakens the

Cosmic Love
within the
Fragrance of Nature

in the Beginning
an old
Silk Road
charmed the
Flight of the Spirit

Mysterious Encounter
with the
Symphony of the Forest
stirred a
Magical Wave
to the
Symphony of Dreams
like a
A Drop of Silence
buoyed on a
Silver Cloud
Transit on the Wind

beyond the
Howling Thunder
I felt
Innocent People
on a
Journey to a Fantasy
like a
Glittering Green
Stream of Being

Endless Water


Jingle Poetry's Monday Poetry Potluck is hosted by Amanda and Kavita

The song titles are indeed suggestive and very descriptive, and you've linked them together very ingeniously into an expressive piece. Now I have to hit youtube and check some of them out.
