Simply celebrating life
Is this about the changing of the seasons? That's been on my mind so much lately. Spring is just coming here and I feel like writing a poem about it, but fall is just coming there. It's cool to think about that in a way.
What the heck is a billabong?
Wait, wait, don't tell me ...BILLABONG, n:1. A hookah for hire.2. A clothing manufacturer for whom you can advertise, if you pay them enough.3. An oasis in the Australian country or outback.4. A dancing ground for swagmen, Matilda.
Aye, Sniz,Winter is a-comin' in. But we're still in a severe drought here.
Rhea, the word ``billabong'' is an Aboriginal word for a creek, rivulet river bed or water hole.
G'day Amoeba,I thought Quilly and Maggie May are hilarious with their comments, but you're the front-runner today!!See my reply (above) to Rhea.And say G'day to Matilda er, sorry, Quilly, for me!
I would love to sit by a billabongAnd listen to the loud bird song.....My wretched birds have flown awayI put their food out everydayI don't suppose they're coming back.....They fancy some one else's snack!
I hear the joyous bird song,As I try to sleep.If I had a shot gun,They wouldn't make a peep!Shortly after Amoeba and I moved into this lovely condo, he woke me in the middle of the night with a "Do you hear that?" No, it wasn't a monster my man needed saving from, it was a nasty blood-curdling scream and believe me I couldn't help but hear it! Soon there was a chorus of them!The next morning when the sun came up and we had a look outside we immediately identified the screamer s -- peacocks. Pretty to look at but not so pretty to hear.

...bungle in the jungle - well, that's all right by me...
Billabong. A word that sounds like it's straight out of Jabberwocky. But isn't.Joyous birdsongs. Joyous errant rhyme. Can't get enough of 'em.
