Magazine Moment (27): Australia

Dartmoor Pony

We have been so busy moving house (an ongoing process) that my writing time has temporarily diminished. However, I received a package today from NSW, Australia, containing FreeXpresSion for September 2011, Vol. XVII - Issue No.9, ed. Peter F. Pike. The magazine incorporates the International Poetry Xpressions column prepared by Catherine Lee Clarke. This issue contains six of my poems ...
  • Elegy for Idris Davies [55/2001]  
  • Monte Testaccio: Mound of Potsherds [ 53/2003] 
  • Weddell Seal at the Ice Edge  [29/2010]
  • Isabella Tiger Moth greets the Woolly Bear Caterpillar [42/2009] 
  • Dartmoor: the Call of the Wild [10/2000] 
  • Velvet Shadows in Venice: 'The Stonemason's Yard' [1727-8] by Canaletto [2/2004]
I have now had poems published in UK, Romania, USA, India and Australia.
