Unease – Small Stone #9

                                                daughter

                                              home

                       for the weekend,                         

out with friends,

I hear the siren scream

for the first time

since the last time she was home

I was born in the land of Banjo Paterson, gum trees, and weather extremes. I am a freelance writer. I live in the Bay of Plenty, New Zealand, but still like to claim my Australian heritage. I graduated with a Bachelor of Communications in 2008. I am writing my first novel. I love to write poetry, short stories, and also write for the web. And there is nothing that is on a par with a sunny summer's day spent at Waihi Beach.

  1. For me, there is always at least a slight unease whenever my daughter is off in the world without me, no matter where. I doubt it will ever go away, no matter how old she is.

    1. I think that as they get older it gets harder because if something really goes wrong you can’t fix it the way you did when they were younger and their hurts were smaller.

There are two things I know for certain. One: Bert and Ernie are gay. Two: I want to hear your opinion.
