Our overseas guest
is as bemused by our place names -
as we are by hers -
We listen in wonder as each pronounces familiar words with ease.
and share good natured laughter
as the other stumbles.
Tongue tied togetherness.
A happy Australia Day indeed.
A river of stones is a project started by Fiona &Kaspa to encourage people to engage with the world through writing. In 2011 they invited people to join them in writing a small stone each day during January.
