Christmas Reading at the Village Bookshop

The last reading at the Village Bookshop, 12 Main Street, Moycullen was so successful that Anne and Niall have decided to host a Christmas session on Thursday 8th December from 6.00pm to 8.00pm. Escape the hustle and bustle of the traditional shopping day and sneak away to hear readings of a festive nature and enjoy some refreshments. I am delighted to be reading once again with Celeste Auge, Lorna Shaughnessy, Mary Madec, Moya Roddy and Pete Mullineaux. Here is a sample from one of my poems:

Snow Angels
If I were sky literate I would have read
the cold in the grey cloud
predicting snow on Maimean
that would be with us before long.
It fell from the great bed of weather
like the aftermath of a pillow fight,
settled on collars hurrying home from work,
in the secrets of stone walls.
turned rusted gates to pictures
