      I received this poem from Julie-Ann Avenell, very touching piece...

      Here is a poem I wrote for the Queenlanders who lost their lives and those who survived...
      Dedicated to all who lost their lives in the Queensland Floods





      The sky darkened as it drifted in


      The whole of Queensland would be engulfed within

      Stretching as far and wide as the eye can see


      So many livestock would die in its wake


      Beneath the waters of this enormous lake


      The rivers would rise beyond expectations


      Theodore is the first for evacuations


      The Heavens above unleashing its fury


      Becoming our judge and our jury


      As the waters rose the land would become


      An inland sea to most everyone

      Go traveller.

      Here's to all the dharma bums, the makers of music, the dreamers of dreams, those who live on love and air, the joyously lost, the gloriously adrift, the seekers, the circus joiners, the exiled, the wanderers, the stumblers, the free, a green tea toast to you all.

      May you all find a place to heal your lonliness, a person to call home, a vocation that finds you.

      May you never lose faith in redemption through travel, may your restlessness lead to peace.

      Go, traveller.

      Parkstreet.
