To consume what is not ours


Chili.jpg Christmas

A time of joy and togetherness

Where the sun shines beyond comfortable

on one side of earth


where the sky becomes screened with white and grey

on the other

In retrospect

there has been a year

of revolving painful insecurities

leading to turning the other cheek

to a disaster of extinction of flora and fauna

all year round

forgotten at the time of celebration


Recorded music entices blackouts

throughout each man’s castle

at this time of year


Who’s got a hand on the control

Who is in control

when the death toll rises

as sea levels consume the landscape


The exagerated theatrical plays

constantly performed

at the same time each year by political oponents

requesting we believe

there is no change


When it’s gone

there’s no use crying




The challenge of overcoming fear

allowing oneself to get closer to the edge

to summon all that the mind takes exception to


Means crossing an invisible line


Fighting the light that will break the dark

Being lonely amongst others

Is hard to digest


Trust once broken

leaves an emptiness that cannot be filled.

until human contact is made again


How we stay quiet

when the urge to scream becomes overbearing

can be brave – usually a safety valve in the recesses of thought


Unhealthy quiet control

can be like a steam locomotive


Remembering these times

I cry:  Someone loves you

What is a single life worth?

one unsigned letter

disclosing the departure

time and date

of termination

The grim reaper waiting by the bedside

for the  release

of self-incrimination

with the final breath


The ones left behind


shaded and downcast

with the realization that

your path is empty

for ever more


Fence race

Canberra/NSW border Feb 2018

Follow me

I will lead you to the internal flight of the mind

One of freedom of imagination

Where ignorance can be placed on the scaffold

ready for execution

Opening the reality of acceptance

with creative thoughts

We can


coordinate group intellect

that  will harness compassion

We can

stand tall

centrally within the debris

that the powerful have showered upon us

The earth calls for us to travel together

determined in our resolve for the need

to participate in being one

with the right to be

equal humans on the one planet




Descending into turbulence

searching for a clearing

my mind converting a breath

into a heavy burden


whilst traveling to my lungs


Your unnerving facial expression

exhibiting perpetual criticism

toward human representatives


A public exposure of your disregard

and discontent of those that try and work beside you.

But your crime will be revealed as the solidarity grows

You will be defeated


Sunset St Andrews beach

Rye back beach, Victoria, Australia 2018



request to be different

to walk this earth beyond expectations

my highs and lows not conceptually bound by human rules

To be breath taking at any given moment

and dangerous when confronted

Whilst still retaining soft edges

and a comforting voice

that can be carried by the breeze

Your mechanical life

beckons my outward appearance

to soften your emotions

Imagination has no age


dreams are forever

Words without meaning


Canberra ACT Australia sunset (Telstra tower in the distance)


from those in high places

are like water down the river

on a page

Segments of lines


 where you read between

A stream of text

with a line of expletives

Like foreign objects appearing at random

Painting over the foundation

of the original verse

so that identification is hidden
