This Page I hope will evolve into an eclectic mix of poets and poems old and new, known and not yet known.

October  2014

It’s that ‘season of mists and mellow fruitfulness’ come around again, bringing  with it Carole Bone as  our Guest poet. Carole’s poetic sensibility expresses itself through images as well as words; this sensuous poem, ‘Mabon Moon’, is  illustrated by Carole’s vivid images of autumn.

Here is an angry, eloquent poem celebrating the fundamental importance above all else – especially politics! – of our interweaving with Nature. Over to Wendell Berry.

This month it has been my pleasure to present the “Carole Bone Season” ! Emerging Scottish poet Carole Bone has appeared as a Guest on my blog in previous years. Here she is again, talking about her relationship with poetry, showcasing two of her poems, and finally reading six of her poems at a recent Oxfam Bookshop, Byres Road, Glasgow, poetry reading.

Since it is beginning at the start of a new year, during the season of Epiphany, I am posting T.S. Eliot’s wonderful “Journey of the Magi” – read by Eliot himself, accompanied by atmospheric and evocative images of desert, travel, birth, death, departure….

thanks to my fellow writer Linda Leinen at the wonderful The Task at Hand, via YouTube:
