gibe him sharp.
Tumbleweed in the schoolyard.
Can’t tread him down.
Hurts are on the surface
Thorns and barbs,
quills quietly quivering
the quarry -
into his heart.

Form: Light Verse
Echidna was giving me lots of advice
Giving it hard, expertly, and at least thrice
Encouraging me to go to a dentist now
Warning me as only bossy echidnas know how.

He was told to keep this hidden by his mother.
The short-nosed echidna could lay eggs as well...Read More
Walking Through The Rainforest
Walking through the rainforest
Koala in a tree
Staring at me
Living in Australia
Happy as can be
Sunburnt country is the best

Many native species
Australia is their home
Couldn't be anywhere else
As says this Aussie poem
Platypus in the river
Echidna eating...Read More

Out pops a little leg
Something wiggles out all the way

Her little body soft as silk

The last people clear away
The garden is finished for the day
The garden gnomes have a little shuffle
The flamingo statue has a scuffle

The garden gnomes tend to...Read More

Digging their burrows

It was a rainbow echidna, colourful and bright.

Kangaroo To The Rescue
echidna, children, funny,
A young cyclist called Jimmy Pike,
Famous for riding his cross-country bike,
Hit an echidna, his tire went flat,
Stopping his long trek,there he sat,
I think he might have to hitch-hike.
A kangaroo came jumping strong,
Paused, then asked, "What is wrong?"

On the remains-
of a burned-out soul.
A hope sits on the altar.
A piano drenched in rain-
will not sing...Read More
