A blog because there isn't anywhere else on this site to blog...
I have just heard that Decanto magazine has offered to publish a series of my poems over the coming months. I don't know if any of you subscribe to that magazine, but please look out for the following:


June 2009 - Altai
October 2009 - To Eat an Orange
As if from my mazed and haunted childhood
the incompleteness of longing for love
December 2009 - Iona 4
February 2010 - the last supper
April 2010 - Leaf 14
June 2010 - Leaf 1
August 2010 - The Stone-Gatherers
October 2010 - Radioactive
December 2010 - Leaf 4
February 2011 - Leaf 21

Leaf 21 is actually my latest poem! It is one of a series based on an idea by a fellow-poet, that falling and fallen leaves hold all the memory of a tree. As if from my haunted and mazed childhood is a homage to Dylan Thomas. Iona 4 is a love poem, one of a series taking the theme of life on the that island in the Hebrides as a metaphor for love; it is written in the "Loose Sapphic" form - a form I not-so-much invented as fell over accidentally.

I look forward to seeing if this comes off!
