New poem in The Morning Star

Pleased to have a new poem of mine in The Morning Star’s ‘Well Versed’ today.

It started as a bit of a rant (a ‘gentle rant’ a friend called it) about the state of the world at the moment. And ended up somewhere surprising for me.

It seemed at a tangent to what I’m currently writing about in my next collection, but actually I think it is tied in.

In the context of this week’s terrible events and especially the compassion that’s been shown in the aftermath, it helps me think more hopefully about the future.
