Once the people were all brown and black

Once the people of the land were all brown and black, Then came the wave of white as they overran the original inhabitants of the land, It was followed by the period when the white would become more introvert and restless against the brown and black, Then the door was opened to men and women of all colours, races and faiths, For the nation to turn into the melting pot sooner or later, And while the need is there for even more, They would rightfully take more people every year based on needs and compassion, As some others are...

They call 26th January Australia Day

They call it the Australia Day. When the island nation and the continent would celebrate the day right from the daybreak, In songs and music, speeches and dance, As the steps and movement would mimic those of the kangaroos and the rainbow serpents, the ostritch and the jelly fish, the platypus and the crocodile, the sea dragon and the barramundhi, the dolphin and the brumby, While the words would be made in the sound of kookaburras and the wallabies, magpies and the cuckoos, the parrots and the rosellas, the whales and the penguins, cockatoo and the dingo, the guinea fowl and the bush peacock, When many would acknowledge in words and deeds the first settlers and the custodians of the land.

Three headed rock hued in orange and brown

Where the pyramid tents are hued in purple and gold

Where the pyramid tents placed on the grassed land are hued in purple and gold, While the body of the mountain would rise from the hillock as it remains dressed in snow white, As the flock of cows and bulls, sheep and buffaloes would keep grazing close to the edge of the foreground, While the pair of mighty birds would wing their flight in the heaven’s...
