Owl Time - Bright Day is a collection of animal poems by Mona La Reux, beautifully illustrated by Graham Preston.

One moonlit night, Mona saw some “slinking shrinking foxes” outside the gate of a farm where she was staying. Not waiting to turn off the engine of her car, she ran inside, got her notebook and recorded the event. A poet for many years, with a great love of nature, she was in her element.

The possum was a frequent visitor to Mona's garden: Small nightly visitor, in my plum tree, you are welcome to share its harvest with me.

The great almond-raid by cockatoos was observed and described precisely: beaks like scissors snipped shells with care.

Topics of the poems include kookaburras, penguins, emus, kangaroos, platypus, koalas and echidnas. Mona La Reux writes with much feeling about the animals of the Australian bush. In Owl Time - Bright Day she observes first the nocturnal animals and then those that are active in the daytime.

Mona's poems are accompanied by superb illustrations by well-known Brisbane artist, Graham Preston. This small volume is a tribute to both of them and to the wildlife that inspired them.

Published August 2006 with 30 illustrated pages in soft cover. This book would be of interest to teachers, children and adults of all ages.

Poems for the Kingdom, is a volume of religious poems by Mona La Reux.

Mona is first and foremost a religious poet and all who read her poems are struck by the depth and knowledge displayed in them. The visual images she emits are so strong that readers can readily see what she describes. Mona feels that a religious poet is akin to a prophet and able to develop a deep insight into people, things and events. Writing since childhood, she found her ideas in sermons or places visited and so has a large range of topics.

One thing that distinguishes her poetry is the use of typology and symbolism. For example, in the poem, the Mercy Tree, the tree that is destined to be used as the cross has special significance. She also brings the Old Testament and the New Testament together to show the fulfilment of the prophecies.

Published in October 2005 with 60 illustrated pages in soft cover. This book of poems, which is photocopy free, would be good for people involved in education, religious group meetings, study groups and seminaries.
