I live in Western Sydney. I have been a pastor for many years, and a composer. As a poet, I aim to say something in a few, measured words, welcoming light when it comes. I write mainly sonnets, haiku, elegies and abecedaria “alphabet acrostics.” Two series of early poems are included. For my compositions see: https://soundcloud.com/john-carroll-581706169.
