Book Launch. Joy Ogeh-Hutfield

We attended the launch of Joy Ogeh-Hutfield’s new book of poems Reflections of the Soul in which she expresses her inner battles and frustrations with the world, its systems and its people – dark, challenging and exciting times that give a voice to the poetry in her soul. At a well-attended event in the Dragon Hotel in Swansea, she recited several poems from the book which can be purchased  HERE or from any good bookshop.

Rewarded by Dolphins

And what does a birthday bring?
A child being sick, before we even leave the harbour
(making my breakfast somewhat uneasy!)
a memory of Ireland,
old faces, and ancient places,
ice cream and cold Guinness,
and a beach, thick with shells
drummed by racing horses –
beyond the beach where Jackie stayed
after they stole her Jack away.
And what does a birthday bring?
Cold hands in a strengthening wind,
and seabirds coasting the breakneck waves.
And I’ve a new, blue hat.
And five, yes five, dolphins, breaking out of the blue.
Leaping, skimming and arching,
spelling out something new to come.
And I am rewarded by dolphins.

‘Your words made my heart sing.’
Deborah Klee
