I am grateful & honored that the editors at Erbacce Press (Liverpool, UK) liked four of my poems from the Erbacce Poetry Contest 2016 enough to include in their latest issue (46). These poems, Daisy, On a hook, Song & the bottom of the root, & Telescope & night ornaments, had been longlisted for the contest. I was not aware they would be published in their print magazine. So when I received the magazine featuring my work alongside that of some fine poets from different corners of the world, I was really surprised & delighted. Thanks again Alan Corkish & Andrew Taylor.

Note: Song & the bottom of the root was first published in The Curly Mind on January 23, 2016 & Telescope & night ornaments was first published in The New Verse News on March 26, 2016. And I have added here a more recent version of the piece Daisy.
Delighted to have two new poems, “menos tu vientre” & What is there to write in the latest issue of The Curly Mind (July 15, 2016). Many thanks as always to Reuben Woolley for giving my poems a wonderful home. Be sure to give a read to issue 4 of this blogzine. Lot of work I admire.
