A Stormy Paradise by Fabrizio Turco


Even now, as I step out on to the verandah of the beach house to see the last of the storm clouds departing on the horizon, the air feels muggy.

My brothers and I were a bit saddened by this until my mum pointed out that this was the skink’s protection against predators and that it would eventually grow a new tail.

Courage
Though, it comes naturally to few
Many of us have difficulty finding it
For courage is everything but matter of fact
