Songlines, poetry by Lisa Mary Armstrong at



written by: Lisa Mary Armstrong



They dreamt rivers into existence
Knowing that the moon would soon
Follow with its pale heart
Its reflection catching fire
Luminescent in a mirror
Of still waters

Tracing ancient songlines
Their soulful melodies
Passing over landscapes:
Crisscrossing seas and oceans
Moving through cities and suburbs
Ever evolving,
Yet timeless

Only those who have memorised
The eternal song
Know their destination
A rite of passage passed down
Generations, while ancestral spirits awaken
beckoning them
To return to where
They first begun
To where the songlines
were sung.
