"Re-examine all that you 

have been told, dismiss that

which insults your soul." 

Craig A. Waterman


I’ve been married a very long time to the woman of my dreams and we have had nine wonderful children together. That takes time as you can imagine….so the story telling stayed on the back burner. Then I wrote a little bit of bush poetry that was rattling around in my head one evening…..and the nagging feeling burst into a deep desire to write things that I could leave for my kids. Stories they could understand, be part of and be proud of.  Almost all is in the form of bush poetry along with a story explaining how it came to me…and or why.  

I hope you enjoy....


A New Dream 

Dreams of a distant past 
Happiness teases like a shadow behind me

I look behind and the happiness is gone 
You cannot see a memory, only feel it, dream it  

A new dream awaits me 
A step forward into a new light

True happiness needs no memory 
True happiness throws no shadow
