Antony Fawcus / The Ethiopian Afar & other poems
Some of these poems reflect the light caught in my daughter’s camera during her work in a village community in the Ethiopian Afar. Others are more random shafts of light caught in the prism of my mind and split into a rainbow of reflections about life and death and the half-world of hopes and dreams that lies between. As is the case with rainbows, they are composed both of sunshine and drops of rain.
Antony Fawcus / Written in Sand
Written in Sand embraces a wide range of poetic forms and subject matter. There is something here for everybody: humour, joy, hope, and occasional philosophy. Several of the poems reflect the close relationship between the author and his natural environment.
Antony Fawcus / Gallimaufry
A gallimaufry is a medley of things, originally a culinary term for a stew. One could equally call it a hash, a potpourri or even a hotchpotch.
Antony Fawcus / Brindled Words
These poems were all written on a small farm near the coast of South Australia, a place of couple-colour skies and brindled cows. They draw inspiration from shifting shades, both in the landscape and in the poet’s mind.
