2018/19 has been a very busy year for me!  I have had to put a lot of my writing on hold due to work commitments. I had planned to finally publish Van Diemen’s Land: an exploration of the convict stain, but that will be a little while off yet. Below is a sneak peek into the other collections I have been working on and hope to have published in the near future.

Postively, Pandan!

the shadow of the fan 
spinning


the quickening 
of tired legs

sleep the steps of Block G
International Peace Day


skin-deep
only the fools
are fooled

din of dialects
under the same big tree

the rain
a distraction from silence
the humidity
eases off
speechless you and I
drifting apart


it's wise
not to explore further
déjà vu
dear friend
recalls a time when
love lost

of the tongue

bloodied 
petals

scooting across
facial lines

disoriented 
unfound

memories
enclosed 


exiled

imposter
take my seat
as your own 
ray of sunshine
warms the cold room

stranger's footprints
to the water's edge

Gran's sandy toes
scratching mine


circling Shearwaters ~ 
the unmarked graves
of convicts

a beautiful mess
hurts so good


shuttered doors
Kahlo versus the world
up yours!
