Long time climbing

I have been writing poetry (I want to say ‘attempting poetry’ like it’s mountain climbing) for approximately since I could write. This has been on and off, because, like a mountain climbing expedition, it’s not every day.

The mind has mountains a poet said, but poetry writing does too.

Finally though, another poem I’ve edited and re-edited sporadically since I studied poetry writing at TAFE has been published. Not even accepted with a timeline to be published in the future, but accepted and published, just like that. Today. ‘Oh yes.

And here is the link to it if you would like to read about a couple of things that have have haunted me for decades.

I am really happy this poem finally found a home.

View from a hill (big ancient sand dune really) I actually lived on once upon a time.
