Here’s a poem written in a very special place where I stayed on a writer’s residency in NT. Getting away to write poetry is a fabulous luxury, but you can get lonely for home. I’m delighted that the poem appears on the beautiful blog – Verity La. Here’s what its editor, Alec Patric says about the poem: “Poetry can kick and punch. It can create disorder and disquiet. It can derange, and all of these things with delight. We give this kind of poetry pride of place, but poetry that creates tranquility, opening up spaces within us to feel raw beauty, feels rarer, and harder to really pull off. So I’m delighted to give you Lyn Reeves and her poem Frangipani- on Verity La.
