    "Reflections on Water"
    released 2010

    This is a work commissioned by the Adelaide Zoo and the Environmental Institute at Adelaide University as part of the inaugural Adelaide Water Forum, the theme of which was "water is life". The work is a recoding of multiple voices combined with sound-effects that form the backbone of a soundscape welcoming visitors as they visit the zoo.

    You can see the full text here, and an early version here.

    No available in published form in Tadpoles in the Torrens from Wakefield Press.

    "Daikaiju Limericks"
    released 2007

    Giant Monstrous Limerick Competition Prizewinner

    Not a terribly serious publication, but poetry nonetheless! More in the comments to the original contest post. This came second for "creative abuse of the English language":

    She cried, “Look out there. I see Mothra!”
    From the bed he sighed, “I can't be bothred.
    With monsters gargantuan,
    from King Ghidorah to Rodan,
    this city is perpetually smothred.”

    Magic Dirt: The Best of Sean Williams, 2008, Ed. Russell B Farr (Ticonderoga)

    Daikaiju! Giant Monster Tales, March 2005, Eds. Robert Hood & Robin Pen (Agog! Press) (first publication)

    A popular performance piece, this poems combine the very small and the very large: haiku and giant monsters.

    2005
    Ticonderoga (Australia)

    "Poetry is not what I would automatically link to daikaiju stories, and poetry from a best-selling fantasy author such as Sean Williams for some reason seemed even less likely. Yet Williams has provided some delightful haiku poems that even caught the attention of a non-appreciator of poetry such as myself. The combination of this Japanese art form with the Japanese-inspired monsters complemented the collection nicely." (Internet Review of SF)
