Misty morning Bentley

The gate is open.
Guided to my place,
I find it
past the camp
 rolling over the valley.
"The hills are our ancestors,"
says the woman by the fire.
I hear the carillon call of the didge,
vibrations through the earth I walk upon.
My feet carry me.
I pass the source:
the Elders' Tent, where a child is playing,
a boy is playing
the didge.

"Are you a poet?"
says the woman by the fire,
"Or do you just write whatever?"
