Terry Wheeler


an eagle
in her youth

oscar inherited
his mother’s facility

to swoop

and unnerve with
the swiftest wit

an expert on
ear and eye

his father too

was troubled by
a court case

but oscar had
much more to lose

Terry lives in Brisbane, Australia when not travelling. He worked in the public service for decades and was inspired to write after seeing Michael Dransfield poems in The Australian newspaper when a teenager. He has been published in Australia and abroad since retiring.
