Sky on the rocks

In the centre of Australia
Two giants battle for supremacy.
Infinite blue sky
Ancient Red rock

Sky covers all,
wrapping the four far flung horizons,
so all that moves is watched with bright intensity.

Rock supports all,
Extending to the centre of the earth.
And from those depths,
rising in towering monuments of eternal silence
to challenge the fragile sky
