‘Pall’ and ‘White Woman’s Waterhole’ by Josephine Allen

Primarily a visual artist who has been exhibiting since 1984, Josephine has also facilitated community art projects, run a studio gallery and completed freelance illustration work.

Pall                                                                                                         

It’s a cloak.

Heavy, dark with soft hues.

Holding my contours and drawing me in.

At night I hold my own hand.

 

 

White Woman’s Waterhole

The waterhole is empty,

green circles

the middles’ muddy moisture.

Blanched logs arch

a story underneath.

Long-time deep.

 

Forests reflects.

 

Scotch thistles scratch,

blur edges

amongst the yellow stalks

of bulrushes.

Littered debris on cracked mud.

 

Ambush

for a figurehead!
