Poem of the Month

Delighted to see that Adam Rudden of Lapwing has chosen my poem Butterfly as poem of the month for February.  It is included in my new collection 'Swimming with Dolphins

The poem is reproduced here 


It isn’t easy
Trying to make sense
Of these impromptu
Little sketches

And I need more
Than a fleeting glimpse
To appreciate the subtly
Of these ostentatious moments

Unless you’re trying to tell me
That I too
Might one day
Emerge from the darkness

That I too
Would have my
Twenty seconds of summer
And walk in a world
Beyond my wildest dreams
