A Poem from Leah

Sometimes, lovely things happen and make me think this writing life is a good place to be breathing.

Particularly lovely was this: being sent a poem in progress by a young Welsh writer called Leah Ebdon- she had been inspired to write by reading something on this blog. She caught the mood perfectly, and it was really lovely to feel that someone had ‘got under the skin’ of the emotional connections. Sometime or other I will write about it too, but can’t yet.

The original post is HERE. To do with finding a collection of stones and fossils when visiting my birth father’s study last year.

Leah Ebdon studies writing at Glamorgan University.and she blogs HERE
One of her poems was commended at The Welsh Poetry Competition last year. For details on this competition FOLLOW LINKS HERE

How lovely, what a great tribute to you and the inspiring nature of your blog, and to come as a poem, when April is national poetry month (maybe in the US?), it's even nicer. Perhaps in honour of NPM, we should poetry-blog?
