7.The Town I Loved So Well: Images of Gawler SA. Through the Streets of my Town.

July 25, 2017



After the fog lifted-

the slow immolation

of soft folds

of thick grey flesh

from tree and fence

and stone.

We already knew

what was shrouded there,

familiar as our daily

winter rounds

but see in a new light

after the sun

and something we all grow

daily closer to

the unveiling semblance

to thin whitened bones

of picket fence

wrung with cold

on this too still and silent

July afternoon.
