Poynton Library is celebrating National Poetry Day with its second annual Poetry Trail, brainchild of author Margaret Holbrook. A range of diverse and captivating poems are displayed in the library and around the lovely shops and eateries of Poynton. I have two poems in the library.  I shall read them and a new poem inspired by this year’s theme of Freedom at the open mic event (see below). Everyone welcome to this free event to recite or listen.

I don’t have any hen poems, although I do have one called ‘Game Bird in Autumn’ which I shall read, and my latest, on this National Poetry Month theme of Freedom.

Hosted by local writer, Margaret Holbrook, the events take place on the second Monday of every month at the charming UBAgenes in Poynton – the food and drink is as fresh and classy as the decor, by the way. Apart from the guest writers, everyone is invited to read from their own work or favourite authors and poets, or sit back and be entertained by the others. 7.30 p.m – 9.30 pm.

Just enjoyed my second guest spot since these entertaining monthly events began in April this year. My first was as a poet; as it was Easter week I read my Christ’s Passion in Poetry and Perspective. Last week, as Guest Author I read from my latest novel, Blue Is The Object.
