Another example of the lithe and exnterprising new life flowing into the poetry world online, ANTHROPOCENE publishes new work – poems and translations – every Wednesday and Sunday, as well as a fortnighty newletter.

All this is available on their site here, including these contributions from me – Limestone Singing and To Seed... and Catchment and Feather on the Pillow . Several of these comes from an ongoing project, begun during the pandemic, of walking the marginal land here round Penarth.
