I’m very happy that the Cannon Poets have published two of my poems, Mor Hafren Prayer and Last Days of the Orphanage, in the September 2013 issue of their quarterly magazine The Cannon’s Mouth. You can find out more about them and read some of their poems here.
Mor Hafren Prayer is inspired by a beautiful place on the South Wales coastline, which I visited on a stormy day when I was a teenager. Last Days of the Orphanage tells the story of Mrs McCarthy, a woman who is facing a heartbreaking farewell with the children she has raised. Both poems are about ways that we process hope and loss, but show very different people with their own approaches.
