Pinot Poetry

Here is my poetry collection – served best with a good Pinot. 


A poem about sometimes taking our children for granted : Beholden‘

“Beholden’ is a glorious mess of the gritty realism of parenting: ‘All day he’s had a yoghurt propelling snotty nose’, and ‘the fatigued and frazzled baby-Father fights’. Yet love comes through too, and rhyme is used as we look at the child with images just as powerful: ‘his chimp-like rump/his bitty belly, portly and plump’. A strong poem about not taking parenthood for granted — and I love the shades of Sylvia Plath in, ‘…like gobbling down a podgy gold watch’”

What I think when I see a fellow parent scowl at me: When I see a parent scowl

About rekindling the romance after a trip to the country: The Wild Life 

How I felt after a weight loss shake seller asked me a question: True story:  Chubby Mummy

And a silly rap for everyone who has been through teething Hell: The Teething rap
