Inspiration: High Pressure/Low Pressure by Josh O’Rourke



Rarer than gold
Water shading, light dancing, greased lightning.
Shimmering, looping, singing
In the Rain.
Hissing depths sympathise
With Crested Grebes;
Whispering to submerged Taniwhas.
Tangaroa kissing, reflecting
The natural capital of Atlantis.




Some comments from the selection panel:

“I like the surprising combination of some of the language”
