wormwood, earth and honey

wormwood, earth and honey is my first solo poetry collection, and has just been published by Circaidy Gregory Press ISBN 9781906451042

The poems are accessible but never trivial: warm, earthy, intelligent and – just when you begin to snuggle into the intimacy of it – spiked with fire and venom.


she walked between trees
from chapel to ruin

followed a path of sorrel
where the ground dips
into a muddy trap

raced past garden walls
neat bricks, secret delights
stolen on a whim

remembered, too late
that sorrel poisons
the unwary

wormwood, earth and honey may be purchased from amazon, or directly from the publisher here.

I am impressed with these poems, Cathy. I keep dipping in to the book and finding more gems.

The title really suits to the contents.

Everyday, surreal, playful, dark, they have the lot. Then there's your skill with words.

I'm getting carried away. I'll shut up.

And I'll read through before posting next time: 'suits to' ?*!
