This anthology is a rich and varied menu of surprise, reverence, love and longing, colour and humour. The poems also reflect Don’s faith and his appreciation and love of God’s creation and, if we pay attention, His many signs of grace to us in His world. Read these poems aloud and savour them.
Welcome to the new look Poetica Christi Website.
Hopefully the new format will provide a more enjoyable experience of the site.

Our aim is to publish good Australian poetry with a Christian ethos, accessible to poets and non-poets, to minister to and encourage them.
We hope to build appreciation and awareness of poetry by and for Christians, believing it to be a valuable gift for use in the church and beyond.
