Crossing the Daintree

The car ferry crosses to the rainforest:
I heard the glissando whistle of the whip bird
You took the photo of me leaning on the rails,
You had said: ‘What if I just keep driving?’
The solitary sitter on the plane
The flight home to London,
mindful of family
and another life.

Footnote: The Daintree is a river in the Northlands, Australia.
