Before Black Saturday #01. The bushfires of 2003

and now it is Mount Buffalo in the air
I can taste it

I’m currently working to bring to life a collection of Bushfire poetry called Devil in the Wind – stories and voices – arising from our disastrous Black Saturday fires of 2009. February 2019 will see the 10th year commemoration. I’ll talk and write more about that in the weeks leading up to April/May 2019, when I hope to have final proofs in my hands and be ready to go with it …


The above is from an introductory post for a small series of poems and discussion that will take place once a week over the next couple of months. Please feel free to pop over, take a look, join the conversation.
