Prize winning poem


Poem written while travelling on the Poet’s Train from Canberra to Sydney on Friday 5 September 2014. I won 2nd prize – a 3 mth NSW TrainLink Pass. Hope to use it to go to Broken Hill.

Window gazing

Imprisoned on a seat
head swaying
to its own rhythm
I see
swollen creeks
full of purpose
burrowing under the track
