I Wrote Your Story on a Gum Leaf

Poem & Story for this Aussie day

Collage by Author with stuff from Canva. (I seem to be all about the scrapbook look at the moment)

I wrote your story on a gum nut leaf
then wrapped you in it, your silver sheath

You were so small, you were easy snug
in the pinking silver woodling bud

And when the redling gold flowers grew
Then out you popped, and away you flew.

I make things. I’m interested in how we use storytelling.
