warrumbungles healing

you thought you could destroy me

in this January just gone

your licking flames and searing heat

panting for the signal of defeat

I did not surrender to your call

my strength is now returning

green tips are young and eager

birds upon my branches as yet so meagre

silence lingers in the ‘Bungles

no chirping chomping or chatter

no hikers campers or forest friends

until the day our nature mends

The Warrumbungles in north west New South Wales  (this map will help you locate the Warrumbungles) suffered devastating bushfires in January 2013. You can learn more about the bushfires  at this site.

Rains have come to the rescue and recovery is happening.  The silence on the walks is eerie, awaiting the return of the creatures to the Warrumbungles.
