Inside #2 – A Poem for 7/7 from Recital ‘An Almanac’

July 7, 2010 § Leave a comment

Being the 5th anniversary of the London Bombings of July 2005, I have recorded my poem Inside #2 which takes the reader/listener onto the ill fated bus in Tavistock Square that day. I decided to put the piece on Youtube and share it on my blog, to make it easily accessible to anyone interested. Please take a look, and please pass it on to anyone who you think would be interested, or who perhaps thinks poetry has no relevance in these days.

If you are after a bit of summer reading my not make Recital one of your books? and/or don’t forget Don’t Wear It On Your Head, for the kids.

Just a thought:
I believe that peace comes from being strong enough to make it, war and terror are the weapons of the weak – they are both easier options than having to face both self and other. It is time we as individuals let ourselves be strong, and stop looking outside for answers to people who believe in statistics and the economy as some kind of god. 

Kindest regards
