Bass Strait Sealing Rush
The Bass Strait sealing rush began in eighteen-o-three,
where at least a dozen vessels were wrestling with the sea,
for the China trade was booming, for the want of skins and oils.
This was the first real export, from Australian soils.

Moon bunts as a saffron sun advances o'er a horizon,
Spring's dabbled hues tender hearts a growthful bounty, 
Love sprung amidst the fluttering of its emerald leaves,
High upon mounds beneath an affectionate bluish peak,
Cascading conduit spews of embracing inclined surrender,

O lonely blue moon, smile a bit for me.
I just wander here and there aimlessly.
Come dear wan moon, shine brightly so I'll see,
Search for my dear one to love faithfully.

by the pen of inspiration,
blank sheet of paper,
no longer resist poetry's advances
gave in to the temptation
letting poem's words be written

transforming itself 
an insignificant unknown page

It is a universal truth that time moves onward…hour by hour…day by day 
flowing in but one direction…stopping for no one along the way.

The time that’s measured by our clocks marches forward…absolutely
The time that ages our bodies…advances resolutely.

But there is...Read More

He sits again to play a game
Set apart to make his mark
A pen in hand his prospects dark
At daybreak driving forward

Filled with youth, a strapping lad
Like his peers aspired to greatness
Elusive fame like shadows
Plays peek-a-boo, a childish game

The bay leaf is an essential

Of all technological advances

And is the pick of electronic aids,

That has starred in a most important role,
And is sufficiently cheap at the price:

Don't believe computers will ever become self-aware
With all the advances in technology, we'll never be there

Sentinel's Watch
He wouldn’t give me the time of day
if his watch was on fire –
the one I’d started running for.

I’d go seriatim on the trail
while speculating about
traversing more
uneven terrain still
just to catch a glimpse of him.


Once I settled
into a pace he...Read More

Together Until the End
We met when I was just thirteen.
You found me there—
Alone in the cold, numbing blizzard
They clung to each other for warmth
But you found me there—
Trembling and weak from the cold,
And you clung to me. 

Your advances unsettled me at first.

deep within this song of Alahsar,
The Dark Man and Turvehr,

the storm begins to dissipate, 
the sky becoming light,
a mother calls no more,
the thunder is gone,
silence is ever deafening.

Retreats and advances
