More on cyclones

Litoria infrafrenata, the green tree frog you can hear on the recording.

Ex-tropical cyclone Paul is currently working its way out and bringing bucketing rain to Far North Queensland following on the heels of Cyclone Ului. Tonight the roar of rain was mixed with the screams of green tree frogs. I couldn't tell if they were screams of delight or of terror!

To listen to the sound of green tree frogs and cyclones, as well as poems about Category 5 Cyclone Larry (20 March 2006) you can listen to the podcast of Poetica based on my collection, Earth's Breath (2009).


  1. Thanks Chris - did you have a good time in Ardlethan? My home town. Strange to think of Poetry at the Palace!
