Darkwood Poems by Brian Hawkins

Click for more on my bioregion


This site contains material relating to the book 'Darkwood Poems', by Brian Hawkins, published by Topknot Books.

"Darkwood Poems is about the Dorrigo/Bellinger area of New South Wales, specifically Thora and the Darkwood Road. The land is a treasure-trove, a biological jewel, an ancient refugium for thousands of amazing plants and animals that hark back to our ur-continent, Gondwana. When I arrived, I found it hard to believe that I could be lucky enough to live in such a place: all the riches of creation seemed to glitter before me. Many of these poems make up a sort of nature-diary, chronicling the events of a year (in truth, a couple of years, though the bulk of the book was written between January 2006 and February 2007) – though I hope they are more than that."

Brian Hawkins and Pip Wilson publicly read poetry together in Bellingen
