The word prompt from Laura at Manic Mondays 3 Way Prompt: Confession
I wrote this poem, when I was about 17 years old, one day in an English class in High School. The teacher noticed me not paying attention, called me to the front of the class and made me read my poem to the class. I must add I went to an all boys high school.
Owl is sitting
in his tree.
Teddy is here,
I love Teddy
and Teddy loves me.
And Owl is still sitting
in his tree
Dutch goes the Photo word prompt Message inspired me and I just had to put this photo up again.
I saw this on the street in Ballina, a town just up the road a ways. At the time, and still now a couple of years later, it is a silent protest at the Australian Government holding refugee children in detention.
Lost in Translation photo challenge – Juxtaposition
In Sydney Australia, you can see many example of where the old meets the new. The old building, Scots Church has a new building built above it which has 148 apartments which allows the new to hover above the old.
In another part of Sydney, the inner city suburb Newtown has a range of eclectic people and shops. Here we have an outdoor/indoor room on the awning of the building.
One of the contentious issues in Australia is that refugees are kept in detention until their applications are processed. It is believed that children should not be held in these camps. I found this protest in the street in Ballina. a town not far from my place. It is a sad photo when you think about the meaning.
