Peters love for Bush Poetry stems from his life in rural Queensland. He is a member of the Toowoomba Bush poets group that meet monthly to write, recite and share their love of poetry.
Peter believes Bush poetry is a great way of capturing and sharing not just outback Australian life , but also the life and culture of Australians in general.
“Poetry is like painting pictures with words.” Peter said. Poems and songs are a great sensory trigger , and can evoke strong memories of life’s past experiences as well as introduce people to a new idea or concept.
