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!

It’s OK To Need To Disconnect When The Whole World Wants To Connect

Since we're staying safe inside with nowhere to be, and perhaps often very little to actually do, we don’t really have that excuse of busyness for our terrible timing for texting back. We really are always available now; and never has there been a more vital time to stay connected.

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.
