My poem following the prompt from Annie Ridiout and The Mum Poem Press, I've just had a baby. It's also an ode to surgical births during Caesarean Section Awareness Month.
While the dust
Of my being
Carpets the floor
Of the one
I was before...
I recently wrote a piece for the wonderful Popshot Magazine about 'How poetry has helped parents through lockdown'. Read a little excerpt here...
Gingernut Magazine is a beautiful new publication full to the brim with gorgeous illustrations, interviews, stories, poetry and much more.
It is an absolute joy and priviledge to see one of my poems published in Issue Two.
Fuse the fibres back together,
Of heartstrings that have been stretched,
All elasticity loosened.
