A holiday night

It’s 8:24pm On a week day holiday night I’m tucked up in my newly made bed Sore feet resting up for tomorrow’s plight. They’ve been sore for a good three weeks now And they will for another few days delight With their pain and…

Wonder

Why do I work all day Family in the afternoon Study for 3 hours each night? Turn out the light exhausted And promptly drift to sleep? I wonder why each night As I set up for my effort Dragging my tired brain Logging on…

She is burning

Queensland, She is burning Both on the ground and in the air. 100 plus bush fires devouring Any grass tree or gum in their paths. Up and down the coast line From Brisbane down south, To way north of Cairns, Smoke haze fills the…

Nippers

Sadness

Ode to Sandstone

People love their granites And marble countertops They ooh and ah right over The pretty coloured rocks. Volcanic formations Get more than they deserve They’re hard and they tessalate It’s more than I can bear. It’s the humble sandstone With layers of darker sand…
