Colony--from Latin colonial, via colons ‘the farmer’ from colure ‘to cultivate’.


the politics of age is a nasty old sage that nature rejects

while the intellect perfects with concepts of veneration

where the pensioner accepts what’s left of mechanization beyond the range of superannuation

-where the purpose of success lies beneath the nature of regeneration, like need and want a colony of succession is established through an act of implementation,…

moving forward

Out of the mix

Into the crowd

with the plastic bits

of the finger tips

critically engaged

at this early stage

this emotional age

with the screen

the connection


with velvet hits

the emotion fits

Thylacine time.

 In the landscape of language on a warm summer’s day, a stream of consciousness flows through the fields of emotion the warm sun penetrates. There is much life here ducks and wallabies sport on the edge of what is and what maybe yesterday or sometime.

Hi Raymond, and welcome to the Sydney Poetry social site.

This is a social site built by the poets (and friends) of Sydney (and surrounds) for the poets (and friends) of Sydney (and surrounds).

You can:

This being a social site the more we all do here the more interesting it becomes for everyone. While there's no editor deciding what gets published there is just a bit of post facto moderation to keep it clean and on-topic.

So others here know a bit more about your interest in poetry it'd be great if you introduced yourself with a few words in a post or the text box on your profile page (and add an image for your avatar too if you're in the mood).

I hope you enjoy your time on the site and find it useful, and please let us know what you think.


Best wishes,


You need to be a member of Sydney Poetry to add comments!
