Lizzie Bestow

CHRYSALIS
Recovery and love

Lizzie Bestow writes about rebirth and change
and it is only when the poems
have been slowly read and considered
that the power of the title
to this concise sequence registers
with the importance it has earned.

Philip Rush

DARK WOOD LIGHT
There and back again

'After the false respite
of early autumn 2020
where some travel and companionship briefly returned, we resumed
our three-and-a-half mile walk
across the fields & through Lightwood
to the top of the ridge,
before coming back down Ocker Hill.
Each day we took the same route,
although we now alternated
between a clockwise
and an anti-clockwise direction.
Anti-clockwise seemed steeper.'

 

The three poets in Stroud Poets 2.10
see the world
in rewardingly different ways.

Olivier Huband's world is exuberant,
street-wise & combative
but it is not without humour;
Belinda Rimmer looks
through the lens of a photographer
to find juxtapositions and puzzles;
Andrew Stafford walks the hills
around Stroud and beyond
to meditate on the slow experience
of landscape.

Belinda's entry was 'long-listed'
in the 2020 National Poetry Competition.

All three poets are fully in control
of their language
and of the finely judged structure of their poems.
