Finally! HIRAETH gets a review! It happens to be the collection that contains, in my opinion, the most beautiful lines I've ever written (to date) so I'm glad it got the attention of Steve Spence who reviewed it for Litter Magazine:
"Hiraeth, the title taken from the Welsh word for homesickness, twenty six tercets taking in a vast range of themes and subjects, ranging across politics, visual art, war, natural history, dreams, language and religion to name a few. ... 
"This collection is full of surprise and wit and celebration and splendour and dark moments and can be both read through in a sitting and contemplated at a more leisurely pace, perhaps both is the best option. The cover artwork ‘Suitcase’ by Bruce Connor suggests a cornucopia and this is largely what we have here, a panoramic vision, warts and all."
You can see entire review HERE. Thank you Mr. Spence.
