Wendy and the Kookaburra Tree

Rated "G" by the Author.

Bite into the caramel candy apple of life. Taste the Yin and Yang, the sweet and sour, the me and you, and all the rainbow-delicious flavors that life can be.


My name is Wendy.

Welcome to my world.

 I am an amazing girl!


Observe the changes and new ways.

Wisdom's fruit is dynamic today.

No more blues and out with the gray,

The fog lifted from my horizon today,

Sunshine coming on strong. Hurray!

I have been reborn as a real person.


Honey and milk, milk and honey,

Flowing before my eyes

Which drink it up thirsty,

Like children on a  carnival ride,

Slurping up the tasty cream in my mind.

(laughing loudly)

Old Mr. Disney could not have seen it any clearer with multi-dimensional clarity as I do right this minute.

Space flowing into my body and back out again, interacting with cunning verses in counter-point.

Our hearts tapping out a song of life in 2/4 time, with two quarter note crochet beats channeling our psionic powers, whether imagined or real, I cannot say why. They have taken us aback when we consider the individual life space in which we carve our curved orbits among the many quantum probabilities of this enzymatic existence.

(laughing loudly and crazily)

Too tremendous to parlay into words effectively here, so I stab at thee with my quadra-lobed thoughts, two roving pairs of satellites demonically spying your secret palaces of pleasure and pain, aha, I see you and me clearly now!

I am reminded of an old Australian song about the Kookaburra bird, with its loud crazy laugh.

Yes what a loud crazy laugh of life the Kookaburra has.

It will turn the frown on your face into a smile!

It goes like this:



Kookaburra Kookaburra sits on the old gum tree
Merry merry king of the bush is he
Laugh Kookaburra, laugh Kookaburra
Gay your life must be



Kookaburra sits on the old gum tree
Eating all the gumdrops he can see
Stop Kookaburra, stop Kookaburra
Leave some gums for me



Kookaburra sits on the old gum tree
Counting all the monkeys he can see
Stop Kookaburra, stop Kookaburra
That's no monkey, that's ME!!!



Swinging in the trees you and me.

Happiness and laughter make us scream.

AHHH! Dance with me. How gay our lives can be.





Can you see?
