Inspired by a great watercolourist, I’m beginning another flower painting. Excited to see how this turns out…
…every time I try to paint flowers I think ‘never again’. Maybe this time it might go better.
That Christmas Eve in 1953 when a lahar swept down the Whangaehu River from Ruapehu’s crater lake, carrying away a train packed with people and presents. 151 people were killed that night, including the engineer and the fireman.
sadness of the water swirling
across the battered rocks and buttresses
where nothing remains
but the memories
of a Christmas that never was
and some who never made it home
(Ironically Tangiwai in Maori means weeping water)
Expressing unexpressed thoughts
a place for poetic-ish ramblings on life, love and happiness ♡
