Mixed Beginnings - Lovers + Australia's Fire Hell



We've made it through for another year. A bad start for us in Australia. My sister and her family was caught up in the horrific NSW/Victoria Bushfires and was cut off with no power or communication for 5 days, so was a terrifying time for all. She finally made it out after roads were opened.

I wrote a poem in the early hours of the 3rd of Jan. See below.
This post was scheduled so let's start with it. The fire poem is at the bottom. Plus Special Offer.


Land crossed Lovers


I had a satire scheduled for the first post, but I thought I'd start with something simpler and nicer. We can all relate to youthful romances.




Listen Here:









Searing / Sparing

A sky bleeding
Like a punishment
Sewn in debt
Guilty for all
A verdict
Before the case is heard.

Hell hath no Fury
Than indiscriminate flames
Delivering
Searing
Spewing
And sparing
Without reason.

Intervention
Carrying its own
Unbalanced fortune.

No safety, no solace
For anyone abound
A little planning
A lot of hope
Open to no-one
But fate's indiscriminate
Claw.

Deliver them
Somehow
Sound.

As Hope
Exists
Beyond this
Beyond certainty
And just as unreliable.
