Part story, part poem. Great reading either way. Excellent job! I really enjoyed this.

I liked this. Thank you for pointing out the "invisible" ones.

A very true sentiment. I enjoyed the seamless switch between prose and poetry. Nicely done!

Ah ha ... I wondered who the Australian writer was ... hi Helen! I love your point about the small and non-showy being so beautiful. I especially identified with the Chinese student for whom the Australian natives were so real. Well done.

Hiya Helen! How I miss the Adelaide spring. Just caught the beginning of it for one week a few weeks ago. I loved the way you used the uniqueness of our native trees to illustrate your point about the 'invisible' people. Really enjoyed the poem, particularly the unexpected rhymes like 'veil' and 'assail.'

Helen, I see you have not got any contact details on your profile - or maybe I'm using my boy's eyes. I'd love to get to know another Australian FW. If you are able to, contact me on valclark@tpg.com.au. If I don't hear from you I will understand that there are very good reasons. :-)
