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.

Dylan's Gower

Dylan’s Gower by Robert Gurney

Poetry of Dylan Thomas’s life: idealism, turbulence, the absurd.
In this tribute to Dylan Thomas , his life on the Gower pensinsula is imagined poetically in the movement of a wave, the build up, the swell, the rise, the disintegration, the spindrift, the crashing down. Then the relief, the calm before the next wave begins to form.
Poems that start with poetic intensity, move towards those that have a painful or nightmarish quality and end with poems that have a lighter touch

Poems, Parkinson’s, the Police and Hywel Griffiths

Our latest book of poetry contains upbeat poems by Hywel Griffiths, a serving police officer afflicted with Parkinson’s disease.

Hywel says…

I hope that these poems illustrate what can be achieved simply through a positive outlook on life, and my favourite phrase- “Be the Best One Can Be.” I hope what these poems convey is my zest and love for life. It’s not always easy, and I feel thankful and privileged to be able to do a job that I love so much.

We hope you enjoy his book and appreciate the extreme difficulties and hurdles that Hywel has had to endure in order to accomplish this.

Available from bookstores and Amazon

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
