I have been commissioned to write a poem about encounters - based on Captain Cook’s voyage up the East coast of Australia. It has ventured outwards into 27 pages. I will read extracts on Sunday 14th May, Coffs Harbour Museum.

Runner up with a poem and images climbing the Royal Botanic Garden, Sydney - New Shoots, Red Room

I live on the Mid North Coast of NSW beside a forest by the sea, after 30 years in the heart of Sydney.

a small Jagun poem
a haiku might grasp momentarily
for ever
the essence of incoming spring
but I’ve just made a photograph
of winter light
graphic on burnt Blackbutt
and stuffed my pockets
with Senna seeds
