  • Flowers on the rooftop


    Thereís a queue of people
    with compassion fatigue
    helping to bring good cheer
    to the weak and the poor
    They canít make it on a landslide
    people step away from their path
    mothers canít take it either
    givers have needs too

    The morning light through the window
    blinds open to see
    flowers on the rooftop
    rays of love shining on you and me

    Waiting for good news
    expose white lies, half truths
    the jaded are fading
    Iíll always believe in you

    Fads change some return
    it seems dyingís in vogue
    and I donít mean that colour or hue
    thereís still so much living to do

    The morning light through the window
    the skies will see
    flowers on the rooftop
    rays of love shining on you and me

    While away time
    itís raining on cracked tiles
    the chimneyís tall
    promising new beginnings

    Beneath the balcony
    a little bird was born
    this morning it returned
    with itís mother to say hello

    The morning light through the window
    lift your eyes to see
    flowers on the rooftop
    rays of love shining on you and me

    • Re: Should our troops be re engaged in Iraq?
      by Isobel Blackthorn
      Iraqi Civil War



      As Iraq breaks down into civil war our Prime Minister is making noises that we may have to take part in an 'allied' resolve to interfere again.

      What do you think?
      I think we should never have taken part first time round. Either the US and its allies are profoundly stupid in that they could not envisage the mayhem they would cause given the initial conditions, or profoundly clever, since last I heard of the $2 Trillion the US spent in Iraq, 90...

      by Mick Pacholli



      The kitchen is the heart of a house where you feel safe to sit and eat. But to your surprise, today, we will tell you that the kitchen is the biggest source of bacterial contamination. Amid a global pandemic taking care of kitchen hygiene to prevent any contamination from the food brought from outside is also imperative.

    • Cassandra by Kathryn Gossow
      by Isobel Blackthorn



      Kathryn Gossow is a masterful storyteller who displays great insight and sensitivity in her handling of difficult themes. The result, her debut novel Cassandra, is an extraordinary and engaging coming of age tale.


      On a remote farm in Queensland, Cassie Shultz feels useless. Her perfect brother Alex has an uncanny ability to predict the weather, and the fortunes of the entire family hinge upon his forecasts. However, her own gift for prophecy remains frustratingly...
