I suppose I must be An alone soul. I’m happy to spend time On my own I guess that’s why The Boy and I Were drawn to each other. Two Alone souls He now sits In a space of aloneness. In that noisy, lonely place. I am not alone, Nor is he. Wish we could […]
I love the ocean. I go to the beach, to think and to find comfort, and to be reminded that I’m such a small piece of this beautiful planet. Those waves roll in no matter what is happening in the human world, and the sound of their crashing gives me peace. John lived in the […]
He’d be asleep now, It’s 7:43pm and it’s dark. Spring. I have flowers in the house, Picked from the garden this evening. All around I can hear neighbours With friends over, Smell their barbeques And listen to their joy. That used to be us, Boy at the barbie, Me inside, Organising the salads. Spring. So […]

Our young Labrador Charlie was safe in our back yard and we headed up to Beacon Hill to watch the panorama of the fireworks across Sydney and up the Parramatta River.

My spellbound […]

I came across a photograph While fossicking through a drawer. It’s just a licence photo, One of those ones We all love to hate. You look like a tough guy, But I know you’re not. You never were. I realise That the memories are slipping, Sliding, Disappearing with the ocean’s breeze. And I need These […]
