Message from Writer

Hi everyone!
I’m Esther; an inspiring author, lover of strong coffee and strong tea, lives by her literary heros JRR Tolkien, Harper Lee, E Lockhart and of course JK Rowling. I believe some songs tell better stories then some novels and the lyrics derserve to be study as equals to litruature.
I hope you give my writing a go and I look forward to reading and enjoying your pieces.

Melbourne

November 12, 2018

The city of a million peoples, 
but so simply defined as one. 
The bitterness of cocktails at night, 
the smoothness of a perfect Flat White. 

The inconspicuous alleys, 
and over-reviewed tourist hotspots. 
The G and Etihad, bolder by our passion to resentfully hate. 
The pubs and clubs vividly blurred by enjoyment. 

The roads and footpaths flattened by the erosion of travelers. 
Morning runners, brunch-scoffers, filling divided in an unanimously loved cafe. 
Men, women and children, seen, but unknown, hunched in our threshold by night, 
wandeing our rich streets by day.

    I've only visited Melbourne a few times but you have seemed to capture its very essence beautifully! Your phrasing also creates such a nice tone- Great job!
