I’ll stay in Adelaide in the parklands
And ruin Mother...Read More

Premium Member Once Seen, Never Forgotten
She saw him as she was driving by
She noticed an air of desolation about the guy
Huddled in his overcoat, his face was blue with cold
Stooped and unshaven, walking slowly as if quite old

She stopped the car abruptly, no time to...Read More

Port Adelaide Proud
When I smell the sea
It reminds me so eagerly
Of Port Adelaide and how it’s made
Those great football deeds and escapades

Of our passionate crowd 
Singing out so loud and proud
And our names like Williams, Wanganeen and Boak
And that September day when...Read More

Your days of chasing villains are over chief
A Doctor’s surgery in North Adelaide
For an examination for me to make the grade
Perusing my X-rays and medical reports
Sitting with the doctor with his ruling retort

He takes his glasses off and looks at me
So serious this will not be good...Read More

When I return to Adelaide on Thursday
To watch Australia's cricketers display
The batting skills with which they now believe
May soon another Ashes win achieve,

Will not be proven immature again.

colour
attracts a
bee here and there-
but fragrance stops it in 
its tracks

over
the stubble
carrion crows-
the game-keeper heads home
for tea

August
shaded gold
becomes monsoon-
berries rot beneath the
bramble.

a drop
of water
upon  the ground-
forever lost,without
a sound

inspired by 2 sam 14:14

Kisses
and cuddles
with whispered sounds-
love reciprocates
our need.

With the only thoughts of snow

With humble wages

Another Road Kill
Spent all day cleaning up my car for a trip to Broken Hill.
Serviced, oiled and greased. The petrol tank is filled.
Left Adelaide for the open road; sun setting in the west.
An orange sky slowly dies; stars are soon addressed.
