River Rocks

Oil on Stretched Canvas 76 x 102cm


In the Kimberley

during the dry season, the river is a series of billabongs

waiting for the wet season so it may flow again.

Between the billabongs the river stones have

a fine dust coating of silt

as they sit quietly in the hot sun

waiting for the next big rains,

the river to flow

and the opportunity to be

moved further down the river.
