Patches of Godlight – poems, prayers, contemplations by Janette Fernando. “This is the work of a courageous, sensitive, vulnerable, new millennium Psalmist, who like David of old finds intimacy and faith in the realities of life. From the laundry to the cathedral, from the tragedy of NY 9/11 to the desert outback of Australia, this is poetry on a journey to the promised Land.” Dr John Smith, Author, Preacher, Founder of God’s Squad.

Maree Silver’s poetry touches every sense. In Threshold – a miscellany, Maree creates imagery that is uniquely Australian. Tanks lean rustily; corellas squabble; frogs croak challenges from the billabong; the citrussy perfume of lemon-scented gums infuses nostrils while earthy ochres blur into cellophane sky. Raised in the Wimmera, Maree recalls childhood memories of desert, plain and river. They come to glorious, descriptive life through her poetry and exquisite photography, and continue to live in harmony with poems of suburbia, family and adulthood. Threshold – a miscellany – poems of country and city will connect you to the Australia of the Dreamtime and the Australia of today. LEIGH HAY
