#iamgrateful for parks and gardens 

Me, sitting by the courts of justice 

the Australian flag dances at half mast

the constant whoosh of falling water 

where seagulls and humans alike

seek refuge from a southern sun

shouting in protest 

through the clouds,

We are equal!

Clowns and false smiles 

brand us in this moment 

like the hot irons 

of insensitivity and folly.

Should we listen? Maybe.

Should we do something? Probably.

But, no, we will sit in the park

and toast to OUR reality

let the sun leave its mark

a red mark on humanity.



I like to think I'm a story teller. I love stories. I believe the world is filled with stories just waiting to be told and learned. I enjoy travelling down the road less travelled, with my iPhone and journal in each hand. Here you'll find all my poetic musings... Enjoy!

Thanks for reading! What did you think?
