Red Passion Writings

A collection of short stories and poems from a queer romance writer

DAILY JOURNEY

My daily journey
From my seaside town
To the city
By car
Train
And bus

Drive from near the sea
Through the country
Mountains in the distance
A man made dam
To a country town
To catch the train

Past towns
Mountains
Fields
Orchards
Creeks
Suburban sprawl
City skyscrapers

Cross the river
Past the city
Perched on the river bank
Mangroves lining the shore
Mountains in the distance
To the west

Change to a bus
Cross the river again
The mountains to the north west
My work before me
On a bend in the river
Buildings of sandstone
Metal and concrete
Parkland
Lakes

In the evening
The reverse journey
Bus
Train
Cross the river
This time
A train on a line
With a country town
It’s final destination
On the north coast
In the hills inland

I like it
As I am a country town girl
Some thing nice about it
Going away from the
Craziness of work
Leaving the bustle of the city behind

To the quietness
The serenity
Community
And sense of belonging
In a country
And coastal town

Past the suburbs
Towns
The blackness
And darkness
Of the fields
Bush
And mountains beyond

A sense of vastness
That there is more beyond
The well lit city
And towns
A vast land
The country
