New Publication, Other Blog, Small Notebook, Serialisation, No Sensation, Poems Written in The Theatre Of The Empire Of Great Britain

Let’s start with the introduction:

The absolute pleasure of writing in a small notebook, no sooner is the poem started than it is completed. The book was bought on vacation, in the most charming town of Royal Tunbridge Wells. We stayed in One Warwick Park, which stylishly reflects the wealth and prosperity of this locale. Visits were made to Tudeley Church, to see Chagall’s Stained Glass Windows. Also we went to the wonderful gardens at Sissinghurst, the one time home of Vita Sackville-West. From there I moved on to a magical meditation retreat at Emerson College, Forest Row. This was a place where effectively my writing began; on a Poetry Otherwise course led by the inspirational Paul Mathews, the author of Sing Me The Creation. The final poems were written back in Lincolnshire, or honed at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park; you may note the return to Northernness.

Next the dates: The book is on Amazon already, Serialisation on the Blog begins in the coming days, the accompanying audio and video will arrive in the new year, courtesy of Bandcamp and youtube.

The Images: Here they are, front cover and back cover respectively.


The extract: Poem Numero Uno

Shop Till You Drop

In a deep velvet chair
In front of
A bloody great big mirror

Waiting, while
A new top is tried on
To match the recently gifted skirt

Of course
Neither the style, nor the fit
Or even the colour

Are quite to the liking
Of her best friend

Most days I would try to write a poem; it is a practice, as I suppose is meditation, or smiling, or watching the world go by.
