On the sticky Sunshine Coast
Fat bats, fruit-fed
Flap low through palms
On balmy nights,

Shadows of darkness deeper
Than the night’s black
That burrow into the secret folds
Of palms’ thick skirts.

In Wellington’s windy winter dusk
Through moaning pines
Crowing magpies soar and shriek
Their pilfering intent,

They spread their wings
And fly too close
As their steely eyes
Eye mine up for size.

At an East Cape beach
In fearful sea, alone
For beyond the reef I've seen
The charcoal stingrays glide,

Winging their way
Through waters, dark
Yet trailing longer
Through doubt-edged dreams.

The flicker of these creatures haunt
With morph of ancient flight,
Like Escher’s lines of blackened shapes
In merge from rays to bats to birds.

  I really like your POEM track ... a masterpiece! Wonderful to hear the bats fly ... they almost sound like recorded from a bat detector ... did you use one, or have you studied bat recordings for this track? ... Charlotte's voice and recitation is also wonderful ....
