TODAY – WEDNESDAY 7TH JULY, 2021 – IS A MILESTONE!
PUBLICATION DAY FOR MY FIRST ANTHOLOGY!
Here, for first time published in print, you can find my poem “Last Stand at Fairy Creek” which you will have heard me performing for the “Stories-Less-Spoken” Podcast series.
“That poem has so much weight to it!” Cole Kelly, Director and Co-Host, The Little Stories Series: The Spoken Word.
“I was very moved by it.” Christine Lowther, Poet Laureate, Tofino, British Columbia
Of the remaining poems, all but one (“Beside the Seaside – a cycle of sea poems”) were written over the past two years and appear together for the first time in this anthology. Many of them will take you on journeys: physical or spiritual. All use common words to express uncommon thoughts, feelings and ideas.
To purchase your own copy in person, visit The Gallery (Sooke Arts Council) (open Wednesday to Sundays). Alternatively, order one directly from me, here on my contact page or visit http://www.sookewriters.com and place an order.
Here I am in the tranquility of Ella Beach on the shoreline of the Salish Sea, Sooke (featured in my poem “The White Night”) in the cool of an early summer’s morning, with my companion lurcher, Perdida.
