This is a north Queensland dairy cow taken at Mungali Dairy on the Atherton Tableland.

As a visual poet, I am very pleased that the first three people to sign up to my blog are artists. Thanks.

For the last nine months I've been writing a daily poem, here is today's

tongue dp242

these words are worn
utterable like the tongues of poems
there are no confessions
we make our own quilt of guilt
paranoia is hermetic
sealed as only a mind can be
unutterable like the tongues of poets


  1. Congratulations on your great Blog. As you know, I have a great interest in the your subject of Cows in history - especially as I have been present when you have taken some of your early photos of Cows in India - I love your poetry and the way in which you weave words to paint pictures, tell stories and pack a political punch - I look forward to following your journey.

  2. Thanks Lariane. My blog is already reinventing itself. It's like following a herd of cattle thinking you know what's ahead and discovering more as you go.
