Warm Winter Words Book 2:
Otway Writers – Apollo Bay Arts Community Project
Funded by the Shire and the Regional Arts Fund Otway Writers includes contributions from 42 writers of all ages.
Produced by the Apollo Bay Arts Council, this book follows the successful publication of Warm Winter Words in 2000.
“We trust the prose and poetry chosen for ‘Otway Writers’ will transport you from the sometimes harsh reality to the world of the Human Heart, Natural World and Journeys.”
Sunday Lyndi Whalen
Children’s laughter overhead
Running feet and water too
Down the track ahead of you
Squelching feet in leaves of mush
Mother Earth her skin so lush
Climb her steady track is worn
Blackberry threatens sharpened thorn
Bull ant rears an angry claw
Then scurries for a bracken door
Track it changes open room
Nature’s wonders in full bloom
Birds in the air
Stones on the sand
Fish in the water
We’re one with the land.
