Poetry for a novel in progress. And now back to the novel.
Image and Words by June Perkins
I’m looking for names
in the process
Back stories are in my
adventures caught in the seam
& I follow
I find names
of place &
connected to nature
that sound so pretty with chosen
Even makes me wonder if I could
change my name
Will I invent a pen name
to find the meaning
metre & the magic?
These names are not out
of a hat
They have meaning

A great blog from Ali. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on some useful and inspiring tools.
Visme is a new design platform that’s shaking up the content creation world. It offers powerful tools for creating elegant business presentations, slick infographics, and other cutting-edge marketing materials. But businesspeople shouldn’t have all the fun.

with the floods, and soon to commence their clean up.
For the People of Townsville and Far North Queensland

The rain didn’t care at all
it just wanted to
would it ever end.
It built up
Ross River dam until
it had to be released.
More flood rumbled
The people wondered
when it would
then it began again.
The people stumbled
then picked themselves
The people kept on going
thankful to be with
wanting to be strong
And the rain
kept on falling
falling and then
the sun came out.
