On This Day My Book Was Born

My debut poetry collection was born on this day three years ago.

Happy Birthday Heading North!


I’m working on a younger sibling for you.

Northern Girl

Northern Girl

born in rain
raised on the northern wind

scattered over
blackstone moor

the smell of dusk
and crowberry in her hair

head cushioned
by cotton grass, bracken

the twite whispers
in her ear 

eyes suggest
the circling merlin

accustomed to
feel

peat water 
bleed

dissolution
on the Pennine ridge
