Inspirational women - Dorothy Porter 1954 - 2008

Dorothy Porter one of Australia's greatest poets died last week aged 54 after a four year battle with breast cancer.

a dark rose
in a bowl
of light water

its scent creeps
like a slow spider
up my face

and it stings
in the eyes

so I cry
for pleasure
for no reason
in Nefrititi's rose room.

-from "Akhenaten" -
