Stone # 2

the meat falls from the drumstick

as it rises to his mouth

more than my food

is fed to him

at this table

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. Your son is quite handsome. Apples don’t fall far from the tree. I am enjoying your haiku-esque poems. Poems should be brief. They should crystalize language to the fewest words possible to convey a message, thought, idea… Thank you! You’ve been very busy.

    and i trust that this is your son?πŸ™‚

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