Bespoke illustration for Amy Knight by her friend and long time collaborator Luke Skinner

Ever since,

I drink gin out of coffee cups

I cut wild branches from hedgerows

A poem in response to GiaB writing prompt #21 furniture

A villanelle

Photograph of a birdhouse tucked in a hedgerow, captured by the author on a walk in rural Northamptonshire (UK)

A place to hide while Spring rain falls;
a humble, homely little nest.
We’ll grow and learn between these walls.

The sun gets high and then she falls;
to light’s defeat we can attest
as we listen…
