The Meaning of Existence

We lost a big fish today. Poetry is become a smaller place.

aroused

Everything except language

knows the meaning of existence. 
Trees, planets, rivers, time
know nothing else. They express it 
moment by moment as the universe. 

Even this fool of a body
lives it in part, and would 
have full dignity within it 
but for the ignorant freedom 
of my talking mind. 

Les Murray – a well-known Australian poet who died today
… reminds me of another Geelong poet we know?
