About the book

I MET A FEATHER is a collection of poems that examines daily life from a nuanced perspective. Implicit themes and emotions are explored through familiar subjects and events which often go unnoticed.The poems invite you to delve beneath the surface and experience simple realities.Giving expression to various themes and voices has been a gratifying experience for me. It felt as if the poems were waiting to be written. The poem ‘Every Soil’ won the First Prize at the BBC Digital Radio Text Poetry competition in 2001. I hope you enjoy reading the book as much as I did writing it.
