‘ The Bird of Morning’ Is my first collection of poems.
I live in South London with a husband, daughter and cat called Erwin and I am artist, poet and singer songwriter. For the last ten years I have narrated and performed my poems and songs all over London, often as part of ‘Survivors’ poetry and music nights at the Poetry café in Covent Garden, London.
Poem from The Bird of Morning

Because so many are torn away too soon; unsung, I will remember and remember well; one night, one day, I too shall be undone, my time will come. And I’ll be free to grow into the lineaments of a tree; a breath of cloud, a wave that rises and falls and sighs and sighs and sighs an amaranthine sea….
