After the fashion show, As I walked past the art installation In my I saw a tall, blonde lady In a neat outfit and picture-perfect hair,

Aussie Summertime – The Poem

After a long, hard graft, It is time for some downtime And drink some deserved lemon, bitters and lime. With the jolly Xmas bells ready to chime, It is the occassion to indulge in favorite pastimes, Watch Christmas movies at primetime, And earn plentiful of free dimes.

Lonelines – The Poem

On lonely nights like today, I feel like harking back to yesterday, While jumping forth to morrow.

Australia’s Weird Political landscape

As I voted in the Australian Federal Election (my first), a few thoughts about some interesting aspects of Australian politics gathered in my mind that I’d always hoped to share.

Room Ad – The Poem

My heart’s breaking as I write this number, But I will take heart in the fact that goodbyes are not forever. I am adapting to the changing COVID-19 time And calling on my room an untimely halftime. I am leaving behind fond memories For you to create rich, new tapestries. This is a magical place
