The mind is a gateway to the depths of creation
threads woven with fate, embroidered with destiny
conform to the cloth of spirit and soul,
if one is adorned by fleeting life
they shall echo through the halls of fractured time
eternity spent with the stars in hand
observing the world in its minute movements
playing god with the child of the universe.
Year of Poetry is one of Story Factory’s most intensive programs. Throughout 2021, a committed group of young writers came to workshops every Thursday afternoon – first at Story Factory in Parramatta; then, when the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic hit, over Discord. Through these and many other disruptions, the young people in this program continued to write and support each other. This chapbook was written as part of that project.
This project was supported by the Copyright Agency’s Cultural Fund.
