Bogged

    Parallel lines deep in the mud Wheels In a rut Travelled too far now No going back Bogged On the track   Darkness descends The mocking laughter of toads and frogs Kneedeep kneedeep And Bogged Bogged Bogged   The sun rises All mocking stopped Salvation A bright coloured Rainbow truck   The beast The wagon … Continue reading

IT WILL BE BETTER WHEN

    The promise of oasis shimmers in the distance   It will be better when   Do I continue Or do I return   It was better then   United in wedlock Not a sordid affair Lovers in a paradoxical Embrace   The future and the past Intersect Alive at this moment   Now … Continue reading

A Poem – GUILTY AS CHARGED

My last couple of posts have been like a whirlwind for me – I know that some people following along who don’t know my background or the background of the Lutheran Church of Australia may have looked at my post a bit perplexed as to what exactly am I talking about. A tiny bit of … Continue reading

The blood of a Unicorn will keep you alive, even if you are an inch from death, but at a terrible price. You have slain something pure and defenceless to save yourself, … Continue reading

Platform Nine and Three Quarters

Hi again  – Time to continue with the Harry Potter theme. Previously we named “He who must not be named” as the law.

For God so Loved the World

There is a fine line between beauty and ugly. Australia is ugly. I could imagine a tourist coming to Australia and driving from one end to the other and going home and spreading the word – Australia is ugly. I could also imagine myself grabbing this aforementioned tourist around the neck and telling him that … Continue reading
