Two poems of mine quoted in AusLit

The following two poems listed in AusLit were quoted  from my book 

Jesus, the Mantra of God, David Lovell Publications, 2005.

AustLit aims to be the definitive virtual research environment and information resource for Australian literary, print, and narrative culture.


p. 56

I searched in the dense thickets and roamed the open plains,

seeking a place to rest.

It was a long journey, with winding ways and a baulking at the cliff.

But suddenly you appeared, stepping out from behind the trees.

And I recognized you, my friend, companion at my side, citizen of my soul,

and knew myself – for are we not one being?


p. 57 (referring to the Face on the Shroud of Turin))

Where are you, sleeper in the dark,

what inner landscape do you perceive,

as you lie there in silence?

What calm, what quiet persists under the blows,

which bring you to yourself

and take us with you into the Void?
