30 DEC 2015 : The object of a new year is not that we should have a new year. It is that we should have a new soul. G.K. Chesterton | the GEM COLLECTION 2015

Nightblind, we wove
through mangroves
suspended above the king tide,
mullet jumped
and dim amber lights
of distant houses,
the bridge, and the dockyard
blurred under the star-speckled sky
You can’t see the dirt now, he said
and it was magical, Throsby Creek,
sand-banked and fish softsplash

Lou Smith (University of Melbourne, Australia)
