Three sparrows sitting on a railing

Poem | The Outside

I wrote this poem quite early on in lockdown for a poetry submission on the theme of nature. It didn't get picked, so I thought I'd share it on here. Waste not, want not!

Poem | Curtains Up

I originally wrote this poem, Curtains Up, in support of Nuffield Southampton Theatres (NST) and their fundraising efforts, since they hold a place close to my heart. But really, this poem is for all theatres and performers. You are so missed, and we will be there once again when the curtain goes up, ready to cheer you on.

Poem | Anenome

The latest prompt from Dear Damsels was 'Open' - which immediately conjured up images of vulnerability and self-protection. The idea of an anenome sprung to mind instantly; and so I sat down, and began to write. This poem is the result.
