Riverfire 2004

Each year at the end of August they do a half hour fireworks display on the Brisbane river. Called Riverfire, it tends to get a large portion of Brisbane spread along the South Bank Reach and Town Reach of the Brisbane river to watch it.

Most years they get an RAAF F-111 from the Amberly Air Force base to do a dump and burn for the finale. One year they couldn't (2003 I think due to RAAF commitments in Iraq), so the next year they had two to make up for it.



Found by Scott, it was taken from an apartment in Coopooroo.

Desert Rose

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the fall
