I am very excited to see my poem ‘Wrinkled Time’ has been published in Australian online journal Verity La.
You can follow this link to have a squiz.
‘Established in 2010 Verity La is an on-line creative arts journal, publishing short fiction and poetry, cultural comment, photomedia, interviews and review (literature, film and contemporary music only).’ (Verity La)
I’d like to thank award-winning author, poet and editor Alec Patric for editorial assistance and publication (and for the very cool image that goes with the poem – not my waterfall on this blog, but the one at Verity La – you will have to pop over there to have a look ;)).
It’s Melbourne Cup today (Australia’s biggest horse race) – have fun everyone, and good luck!

congrats GB, and you know I would love this poetic description of scientific observations. You know that I see no distinction between the real world, science and poetry. Well done.
Thanks d – all is one 🙂
Yes, a very worthy poem. I did pop over and read your What Would it Take too. That is chillingly real. Punishment trumps prevention every time!
Thanks Stafford (I do love the straitjacket they gave me 😉 )
Thanks slpmartin 🙂
Congratulations, Gabrielle. “…No straight lines in nature…” has stuck in my mind.
Thanks Martin – that was the previous title ‘no straight lines in nature’ 🙂 There is in fact no straight lines, full stop – haha.
Thanks Crafty Green Poet 🙂
And congrats from me, too. It’s your finest poem, I think.
Nice of you to say Nigel 🙂 thanks
You’re a brilliant poet, Gabe, bound for glory. You are without a doubt one of my favourite writers. Good on you!
You’re too sweet Selma (now we know that crow was really out to corrupt you 😉 )
that was striking and bountiful and mysterious and i loved it!
thanks tipota – it was written for our friend McPaulus who waxed lyrical about non-linear time and poetry https://gabriellebryden.wordpress.com/2009/11/10/no-straight-lines-in-nature/
Wow! This is great news! Congratulations!
Thanks Jay and thanks for stopping by 🙂
Mind bending poem, Gabe! It’s like concentric circles with the themes of the starting and ending lines (and the mystery of Madeleine) framing the deeper contemplations and mysteries of nature – wonderful 😀 Congrats (now I’m going to be trying to think of a straight-line example in nature all afternoon instead of working!)
Thanks bluebee – tell me if you come up with something straight – haha 😉 – though I don’t think you’ll have much luck – even human made straight things are not really straight I don’t think (eg., a straight road is curved on the surface of the earth). If you google the question, you will see there are a lot of people discussing this very issue.
I was blown away by this poem, Gabe. Out of all your poems I’ve read, this one is your absolute best (to me, anyway). Loved it. Congratulations!
Thanks adeeyoyo – it is one of my favourite topics, one I have been thinking about most of my life.
Congratulations Gabe, it is a fantastic poem, not just food for thought but a smorgasbord, and Verity La. is far and away the best place to eat.
Haha – yes, you can eat to your heart’s content at Verity La 😉
