Creative Writing
A poem written by a keen Eden gardener, who is being plagued by fruit bats in her fruit trees.


Eden Visitors

Silently, they sat below

The fire ringed hills –

Sheltering among the gums

Laden with white honey blossom

In the smoke filled gullies of the coast


Black velvet clouds slid slowly

Up from the south;

Darkest night receding – so very quiet.

First early breeze bringing

Gentle showers of new life.


A murmur rolled about the flock,

A hum – no more – instantly

They left he trees, wheeling

Above the shrouded valley,

Down to the town – still, sleeping – by the sea.


Steady rain on iron rooves

Leaching welcome gurgles into empty tanks

Woke us – Joy! Relief!

Outside, half eatenfruit, decimated crops

Littered across back gardens.

Another price of summer

Yet to be paid.
