Hi, I live in rural New Zealand. I love writing (of course), the bush and my three pet calves.

WILD

Towards the Light

wild and reckless
vines entwined amongst trees
rambunctiously wandering
through dense bush
clinging to branches
with gnarled arms
and loose fingers
moving between trunks
like a slinking possum jumps
hastily scampering
over and under
more obstacles than the eye can see
never stopping
destinations forever moving
away
deep into the dark forest
where light is rare yet within reach of the never ceasing vines

Collective Voice

Kids of the countryside

We are kids of the countryside, of fresh air and animals. We spend hours racing through the bush and camping, playing games and soaring down waterslides. We couldn't care less about the clothes we wear each day and the time we come home from feeding our calves. We learn new skills, inside and out of the house that have been lost to new inventions. It is an idyllic way to grow up, isolated from the world of technology that has been forming. We only live half an hour from the biggest city in the country, but some people might say that we are in the middle of nowhere. To us we live in the middle of everywhere, the best place in our favourite country on Earth. Our home. New Zealand.

Moon girl

Moonlight beamed down upon the bay, casting a luminous glow over the rippling waters. Bathed in light, cliffs rose steadily towards the sky. At the top wind rushed through the long grasses, pulling at everything not safely secured to the ground. The land was wild, roving and free.
Amidst the cliff top grasses perched a ghostly, blue rock that shone in the light. A young girl sat atop the rock. Her skin was as pale as the moon and her long hair was as black as the night sky. Wind lashed against her cheeks, playing mercilessly with her tangled tresses. With trembling hands she clutched her knees into her slender body. A breezy dark blue dress barely covered her slim figure.
From afar the girl was a pleasure to the eye; a part of the stunning landscape, but on closer inspection you could see a river of tears streaming out of her deep blue eyes and onto her wind scorched...
