Bushfire City

blanket of white haze
the stench of smoke hangs
like a winter fog
sweeping reality through
a sleepy sunburnt city

Heatwave Holiday

Yesterday as I lay melting
It was hot; stuffy; sweltering
but then you thundered in – like that
the saviour of us crazy cats!
You roared across the sunburnt state
You left sweet relief in your wake.
The city – dancing in the rain
spinning around – there is no shame
Please don’t leave us! Please don’t go away
we love you dearly! please, please, stay!
Thanks to you we can breathe again;
you’re beautiful – our long lost friend!
