Poems on Eclectica

Delighted to have a couple of poems published on Eclectica. Two from a growing series inspired by memories of Merthyr Tydfil, the town in south Wales where my grandparents lived, and where I spent great chunks of growing up years.

Merthyr Poems HERE and while you are there, visit the flashes written in August at Bootcamp, especially one by writing friend Chelsey Flood, called So Small and So Far Away HERE

There's lovely isn't it?

Strong voice and magical pictures... that blood-shot eyed horse panting is now in my head,

Well done V.


Lit Flood said...

A ha, thanks V. It is a bit rough around the edges, mine, I would like to give it a little extra shine, but hey ho...

There are some great lines in On the Coal Tip. I especially liked: "her coat a grey day before sun-up"

and the image of the prefac boys gathering like crows.

Nice work.
