Newnes State Forest
There is a strip show going on in the forest at the moment. Some varieties of eucalypt do this each year.
Words to walk with:
From Gum-Trees Stripping by Judith Wright
"Say the need's born within the tree
and waits a trigger set for light;
say sap is tidal like the sea,
and rises with the solstice-heat -
but wisdom shells the words away
to watch this fountain slowed in air
where sun joins earth - to watch the place
at which the silent rituals are."
