From Kookie Magazine, written for 8-12 year olds
Interview with Michelle Worthington,
with questions from children about 'being a poet'
Three Trips Down the River
I – A Bed Time Story
Rainforest children fall
Into green dreams
Embracing nature’s eyes
Releasing their love for salmon.
II- Night Time Wishing
In my heart for
Visions of night fishing with Poppy
Evenings of searching for the perfect spot
Remembering our smiles at my first catch.
III – The Franklin
Revealing wild rivers
In the journeys they inspire
Visions for tourist and visitors
Entranced by nature’s eyes
Recipes are made for protective renewal.
