This poem was inspired by an ancient gum tree that grows in my backyard.
I'm an author, poet, and blogger who lives in Sydney, Australia. I blog regularly on my website, www.creativedestination.com.au, which provides creative writing tips for aspiring writers, as well as poetry and micro fiction. Many of my creative writing articles have appeared in online publications such as www.ezinearticles.com.
I currently work as a volunteer editor for Unearthed Fiction magazine, which is part of The Australia Times, a free, magazine based, non-aligned, grassroots, national online publication.
I've recently published a collection of short stories,Tales for the Sisterhood, which is available on Amazon as a Kindle eBook, and paperback.
