With an interior vast and cruel,
When first brought under our Mother's rule:
Rough diamond in the Pacific pool.
With fair Venus as his guiding star,
A Gulliver reached it from afar.

Unearthed that jewel for...Read More

The Enquiry
Is over

They did not find
the missing and murdered
they were looking for
But every woman knows


There are so many

Aboriginal women
As every woman knows


There will never be

My didgeridoo singing,
Produces healthy healing;
Vibrations of nature,
Winning my favor.

Energizes my cells,
As crescendo swells.
Vibrations of bliss,
Mother Nature’s kiss.

Great notes are achieved by,
Instruments like these.
Didgeridoo talks of,
Aboriginal walks.

Some insects sent here are,
God’s indentured servants.
