A Fanfare of Contemporary Women Poets

I am delighted to be included in a new anthology Fanfare: Poems by Contemporary Women Poets edited by Wendy French & Dilys Wood and published by Second Light Publications  www.secondlightlive.co.uk  It is a rich book, full to bursting with many fine women poets.



Falling On My Feet



Crow swings on peanuts.

In the cold and bright,

he looks like a black flag.


The sun has come out,

a lemon light that happens

at this time of year.


I am falling on my feet,

coming to land, the hush of the breath,

all things written through with light.
