Here’s an extract of my Day Three poem, writing one poem a day on my verse novel for Queensland Writers Week. But don’t be fooled… I’m not writing the poems in sequential order. Oh no… That’s not the way I do things!

Aside from developing six new poems (thus far – though I’m hitting a slow-down to one-a-day with busy-ness taking over) it’s also been satisfying to tweak some of the existing poems and rearrange their position in the sequence… feel them click into (right) place. Almost like haiku… Aha!
I can feel the book taking shape, and I like!
