The poems in The Future Keepers honour ecosystems and thecustodians of future ecologies. They navigate the poet’s ownembodied experiences of change and succession – of family,community and place. From the research scientists, gardeners, birdsand plants of Kings Park, to the activism and ecosystems of the BeeliarWetlands, to the poet’s own inherited landscapes, these poems evokemutuality and exchange in speaking of the gifts we receive from beingopen to encounters with other species, and the reciprocity that thesegifts imply.
