So a new selection of poems is ready and waiting to be launched. 15 poems of varying topics but still based on love and nature.
I decided upon the title ‘Af·firm·a·tion’ as it’s a word that baffled me in my teens with it’s meaning, ever since Savage Garden called there second album ‘affirmation’. Bizarre? yes and that’s just like me.
So with the poetry I write I just want to affirm or make a statement that my poetry work is what I like to do. It is me and my thoughts that go into every poem I write. I hold my head high with every poetry collection that I write.
My favourite poem of this collection is without doubt ‘My child’s memories’. This poem I thoroughly enjoyed writing and thinking about.
‘From the bridge’ is a poem about Bangor, North Wales where I went to university, something I haven’t written enough about.
After visiting the Convent in Stroud I wrote ‘The piano in the garden’ after being inspired by the magical place.
