Five Words May: Thursday’s special

Paula has given us another five words to play with. They are:

confined, jazzy, patulous, momentous and  serene.

Confined – giving birth to another whilst last years joey seems reluctant to give up the pouch for the new arrival.

Confined, restrained by a fence so tall – do they jump that high?

or perhaps they hope that it may stop this jazzy fellow from choosing to join them in their confinement.

whilst a momentous moment perhaps occurs for all three.

These two are so serene that they don’t seem to care that there is any other activity.

About Irene Waters 19 Writer Memoirist

I began my working career as a reluctant potato peeler whilst waiting to commence my training as a student nurse. On completion I worked mainly in intensive care/coronary care; finishing my hospital career as clinical nurse educator in intensive care. A life changing period as a resort owner/manager on the island of Tanna in Vanuatu was followed by recovery time as a farmer at Bucca Wauka. Having discovered I was no farmer and vowing never again to own an animal bigger than myself I took on the Barrington General Store. Here we also ran a five star restaurant. Working the shop of a day 7am - 6pm followed by the restaurant until late was surprisingly more stressful than Tanna. On the sale we decided to retire and renovate our house with the help of a builder friend. Now believing we knew everything about building we set to constructing our own house. Just finished a coal mine decided to set up in our backyard. Definitely time to retire we moved to Queensland. I had been writing a manuscript for some time. In the desire to complete this I enrolled in a post grad certificate in creative Industries which I completed 2013. Commenced a masters by research in 2014.

  1. I had to look up patulous to discover that your photo is perfect – as are all the others. Love Australia’s wildlife. The expression on that roo at the end – priceless.

    • Yes I look forward to your words. I am amazed that a couple of entries managed to use one photo for all words. I think we are all having fun with it. This post started off with a pregnant woman being confined but I couldn’t invade my friend’s privacy at such a beautiful time so it went to my dog’s confinement and in looking for those photos came across this little wildlife park which fitted the bill for all.
