Cally Conan-Davies

Cally Conan-Davies learnt a lot as a labourer, dancer, dairy farmer, model, beachcomber. She did not learn what she expected to from her time in academia, where she specialised in Modernism and Depth Psychology. She learnt most of all from mothering her daughter. Now she writes, practises bibliotherapy, and gives private tuition to  under/post-graduate students. She’s still dancing, and loves the sea,  spending as much time as she can in water – where she learns a lot.

The Great Ocean Road

The Great Ocean Road

A hot-wired spirit sparking in the rain,
you jolted me to life, unfroze my heart,
and all my tangled currents you'd explain
as if you read my bathymetric chart.
We ran with leaf-shaped boards into the sea,
birds wheeling, wave noise tossing up white spray;
I dived, holding your breath, and learnt to breathe
on southern coasts where fire and water play.
