There’s another great episode available of Poetry Pea’s Haiku Pea podcast. This one is about animals!
The podcast is also available on YouTube.
I couldn’t pass up the chance to try my hand at some ekphrastic haiku for the Poetry Pea podcast. I was luckily enough to have one of my entries chosen to be read during the show.
(It’s a different one from the image posted here.)
This month’s Poetry Pea podcast is a special on the theme of synaesthesia. I had sent in a few haiku, and one was chosen to be read during the episode. Many thanks to Patricia!
I’m also excited to be able to tell you that I have upcoming publications with The Cicada’s Cry (who make a wonderfully creative haiku zine); Frogpond; and Emma Press, who are putting together an anthology on the topic of illness. The anthology is due to be released next year in the UK.
Thank you to Kate from Jalmurra for publishing my science-inspired micro poem about a mylar balloon.
If you’d like to read my poem on the Jalmurra website, just head on over there!
Thank you to Lorette from The Ekphrastic Review for publishing my poem ‘The Ghost of Me’. The poem is based on this wonderful painting called ‘Sevilla en Fiestas’ by Gustavo Bacarisas (Spain) 1915.

Just a bit of news. I have just finished a poetry course with Manchester Metropolitan University, and during the course I wrote a poem which I have called ‘Sitting Room with Circus Lion’. I got a good review for it from another student (thank you Igor), and I’m reasonably happy with it as it stands, but to be sure I’ll leave it for a few weeks and then have another look.
Later this week, I’ll be posting my new microfiction ‘Theseus’s Ship’. So check back if you would like to read it!
And finally, I recently had a haibun accepted by haibun and tanka prose journal Haibun Today. The new issue is out now, so head over there if you would like to read the piece:
