Aussie Christmas


candle glow

glitter of stars

clink crystal glasses

see the bubbles rise

stroke the long stem

baubles and glass birds.

Wax lyrical about Christmas

before the reaper scythed his crop.

Mr Rat white scarf gloves and tail

rustles through the bouganvillias

on the trellis over our heads

dips his bowler

and scurries to his rendezvous

I've reached the age of flamboyance and bling.I love Classical FM, Jazz, French chansons, French movies, SBS Documentaries and Wednesdays with my Women Writers Critique Group at the NSW Writers Centre.I've published short stories and the occasional article. My novel/'faction on nursing in the 20th Century,' BLACK STOCKINGS WHITE VEIL - A TALE OF ADVERSITY, TRIUMPH AND ROMANCE AT ROYAL PRINCE ALFRED HOSPITAL'- was a Finalist in the 2009 Indie Book Awards.
