The future

I looked into my future

And saw the road ahead

Was strewn with Jacaranda petals

Stained with Barossa wine[1]

Appearances of gentle koalas 

And sometimes even seals 

By the seashore

When I walk those windswept cliffs.

As for the details of my future

They remain hidden as they should

In the grace of the cloud

Of unknowing.

But I did see who my travelling companions will be

Their names are

Silence 

Laughter

Wonder

Joy

Fellowship

And art

What great company 

What a future!

And the promise 

Whispered through the branches of beloved eucalypts

Carried on the wings of yellow-tailed, black cockatoos

Softly spoken in the breaking waves

That God is with me

And I with God

We shall walk this path together

And all shall be well.
