Back in My Home Country

The sky so blue
The sun so bright
The wind so fresh
The air so clear

The fields so broad
The horizon so wide
The spaces so open
The feeling so free

The trees so tall
The flowers so colourful
The fences so long
The hills so rolling

The people so familiar
The language so easy
The food so congenial
The smells so homely

The moon so silver
The stars so bright
The night so dark
The silence so deafening

I am back in my home country... Australia.

[I (Brad) wrote this poem the day after I arrived back at my home in Australia after living in Japan for 2 years].
