So exciting to receive in the mail our complimentary copies of Ginninderra Press’ new Anthology.
I Protest! Poems of Dissent.
Congratulations to Stephen Matthews on a superb publication and so timely.
Both Michael and I are very proud to each have a poem chosen for the Anthology.
Michael’s poem is called Disconnect and is a poem about the precious commodity we have
in water which has its own fragility and he writes how we can be lulled into forgetfulness
‘The fragility of our country and the worry about the aquifers’
My poem rock-a bye-baby speaks of the earth is in pain and yet how easy we can be lulled into sleep, into silence.
I like to think I end hopefully
‘like green shoots from black stumps
will rise poems of possibility’
There is 20% off all books at Ginninderra Press till the end May.
