Small Stone #13 January 2013

I wonder as I continue along the estuary,

past the ducks and the broken down houseboat,

if sitting inside their corrugated grey house

they feel the connection I feel

to the flag that waves carelessly in their garden,

do they know that I,

a plunderer at heart,

have stolen its soul as I walk away ???

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.

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