A Kangaroo in Paradise by Bruce Levine
A kangaroo in paradise
Hopped along the shore
Happily hopping over waves
The surf a foamy roar
Starfish and sea horses
Stood aghast sheltered by a lee
To see a kangaroo within their view
And wondered if this can actually be
If paradise for kangaroos
Is happily hopping by the sea
Maybe next time you might find
A kangaroo is happy in a tree
So next time you’re at the shore
Keep an eye where ‘ere you go
One never knows where paradise
Or kangaroos will show
The kangaroo, unique in its locomotion, bounds across the flat, treeless expanse with enormous leaps as if flying – its weight soaring effortlessly. Its tail, for balance, is so strong that the kangaroo can place its full weight on it. Large hind legs, short boxing front legs, it grazes, then lies prone as if on a reclining throne. Soft fur, big eyes, long eye-lashes, and a frontal pouch for its young joey, there is a lot to be in awe of.
ADVICE: It may be a time for you to demonstrate balanced leadership with the wisdom of ancient times. Mete out justice wisely, listening quietly, contemplating all sides before giving a verdict. Leap all challenges, fly with the wind, stop, be alert, go again. Make conceptual leaps in knowledge; your intuition is on track. Don’t be startled by distractions – barking dogs, babbling budgerigars, coughing koalas. Fly boomer, fly.
“When you come across a problem in your life, do not always try to solve it; make a long jump like a kangaroo and continue on your way! Sometimes, problems must be leaped over without touching them!” – Mehmet Murat Ildan
Lives in mobs
