"White the Lowest Sky"



Cries the Lowest Sky 
tear drops fed as manna
o’er the littlest warrior 
face raised to ultra Light

The 3
that sit in Ultra Gamma
there cries the lowest Sky
the voice that ever hears you

Cries the Lowest Sky

Lyrebird Tales
Mound in the wiregrass is the stage for the dancer in the hills,
who steals the arias of others, then through the valley fills,
a laugh, a whip, a cackle. Even a stolen axe's ring!
Tales of the bush are spoken when a...Read More

Premium Member Charity Dinner
Planning is near complete
For dining in Crown Street:
Flowers deftly arranged,
Glances swiftly exchanged.
China shines, glasses glow,
While boys fetch chairs to tow,
And set them all in place
Around the cloth of lace.
Now the host stands to greet
Those who will share this treat.

Little Stream Without a Name
A day that’s spent in the forest is a day that’s heaven-sent,
with the air so crisp and clean with ample shade,
where Mother Nature’s in control with the forest as it’s meant,
and the struggle’s all around me in the glade.

I am...Read More

Days in a Forest
On the days I’m in the forest,
there is peace and gratitude,
with being where time does move slow,
and there’s the natural attitude,
of the urging for survival,
that keeps the forest in fine tune,
without scars of foreign progress,
in this million year cocoon.

Premium Member Angels And Lyres
An angel walks the earth
Where mortal sinners
Gave a nation birth
An angel of elaborate plume
Once called Bird of Paradise
Still unsurpassed in tune
Its plectrum plucks the lyre
With an unmatched grace
And such a boundless repertoire 
As to flush Apollo's face

It unfurls into song...Read More

LYREBIRD
I passed by Old Man Banksia, a wonderfully gnarled tree,
While trekking through the Jamison, a bushland pedigree,
I saw the broad leaf of the Geebung, with its yelow frill,
The distant sounds of Katoomba Falls with its water spill.

Suddenly excitement grew, new...Read More

THE WATERFALL
I see it through the mountain mist,
From craggy rock it springs its fall,
Its spray of whiteness reaching out
Cascading off a sandstone wall.

A lyrebird is calling out
Just heard above the constant sound,
Of water galloping over rock
And tumbling to the ground.

A hairy...Read More

BLUE MOUNTAINS GULLY
Yellow crops of sandstone,
Jagged mountain peak,
Red display of waratahs,
A meandering bush creek.

White display of flannel flowers,
Bottlebrush with orange cones,
Beautiful fronds of tree ferns,
Blue gums with crafted tones.

A frolicking roll of mountain mist,
An ancient windswept cave,
Green moss upon the velvet rocks,
Falling...Read More
