Deep Water Tears: Book 1 The Dreaming Series


Description

Rachel cannot imagine a life away from ‘Binda’, her home in the bush, where the Macquarie River flows alongside her back door. Her childhood days are spent with her neighbour and biracial best friend, Darel; exploring and learning about the Australian bush and the Wiradjuri (aboriginal) culture, through the teachings of his part-aboriginal mother. At their favourite meeting place, the dividing fence between the two properties, they share all their secrets, including what Darel has told Rachel about his mother’s experience as one of the Stolen Generation. 

Meanwhile, Rachel’s mother, Betty Winton, looks to the future and will go to any length to separate her only daughter from an ‘unsuitable’ relationship. Rachel is sent to boarding school, and a few years later the family home is sold to Darel’s parents, the Rutherfords. Rachel struggles to come to terms with losing Binda and her best friend, but later, when Darel re-enters her life with a woman by his side, she finally decides she must let go of the past, once and for all. However, could what she thought to be her greatest loss, actually be to key to finding her greatest joy?

They'd Dance Across The Kitchen Floor

Poetry


They vowed to spend their lives together
Sharing both the good times, and the bad
Even with the uncertainty of life
Hoping the joys would override the sad
So when testing times arrived
Instead of giving up and heading for the door
They’d dance across the kitchen floor.

It would always be spontaneous
A moment when she was caught off-guard
While pots simmered or the kettle screamed
And life seemed so very hard
He’d suddenly sweep her up in his arms
And look deeply into her eyes in awe
And they’d dance across the kitchen floor.

Life handed them a mountain to climb
And the trail often lined with debris
In the sunshine, it was an adventure
In stormy weather, it was difficult to see
But when the storm raged the most
And they thought they could climb no more
They’d dance across the kitchen floor.

She looks back on their life together
Now he’s no longer there to hold her hand
She thinks not, on the sad times
She ponders not, in trying to understand
Instead, she remembers with love and gratitude
Nothing else, nothing more
Those times they danced across the kitchen floor.

Broken Dreams

Poetry


Broken dreams
Bitter words erupted from lips
That once kissed with sweet caress

Arrow pierced wounds
Wept in quiet sufferance
Now scars of remembrance

A heart still beats, but softly now
The soul, convalescing
Only time will tell, perhaps heal

Too much, and too late
Forgiveness left long ago
On silent wings of acceptance
