Hushed By The Kerbside – A Poem

The other day, I found a rabbit that had been killed by a car. I needed to write about it.

The… Continue reading Hushed By The Kerbside – A Poem

It’s Been A Strange Day – Sunday Musings

It was the… Continue reading Do It Scared – Things From The Pages Of My Notebook

Write For The Arctic – Climate Change Poetry Writing Prompts

Last year, as I watched walruses falling to their deaths on Our Planet, my breath caught in my throat. When I was finally able to release it, it came out as an almighty sob. I started to shake.

A Few Things I'm Looking Forward To & Hoping For In 2021 This list isn't particularly vast and mostly features books I want to read, but it was only several weeks ago that I started to feel a sense of optimism about the future after a very long time with no hope whatsoever.
