The Reef

Good morning all, I thought I'd start the week by posting (one of) my newest poem. This is something I wrote on the weekend to go with my application for the best job in the world. If you haven't heard about that yet, become a following of this blog and you'll lots more about it in the next few weeks! This is still in work and the version that went with my video application for the job is very different, but I thought we could go with the long version on a Monday.

Let me know what you think of this, and all my poetry. If you want to read more of my poetry visit me at

The Reef

Come to me when you need me
When life is tired and bland
Allow my sun to heal your wounds
Then take your lover’s hand

Let my water splash upon your feet
Bury your toes in my golden sand
Throw your heart upon my breeze
Then take your lover’s hand

Consider all I have to offer
I give it to you on command
Feast on all your hungry desire
Then take your lover’s hand

Let your hair fall down your back
Naked, oiled and tanned
Lay upon a secluded beach
And take your lover’s hand

Swim in my sparkling waters
Dance upon my wicked land
Listen to the poet’s wind
Caressed by your lover’s hand

Forget about a life back home
And the work you had planned
Leave uniforms and stress behind
And take your lover’s hand

Play in a million oceans
Be indulged by nature grand
Give in to life’s great sins
When you take your lover’s hand

Love here is not an added option,
It grab’s you without demand
Relax as it embraces your soul
Then take your lover’s hand

Take your lover’s hand
Take your lover’s hand
I am Australia’s mighty reef
Come, and take your lover’s hand
