The Secrets of the Sea
THE SECRETS OF THE SEA
My latest poetry collection, published in September 2015. It contains the 2015 Basil Bunting Prize winning poem “Walk”.
‘The poems are often invigorated by all too human misprisions or incongruities: Brendan and his monks praying on their “small island” before “the whale lifts itself from seeming sleep”; intimations of romance in the fish market where “great crustaceans twitch” and “a salmon sleeps in a drift of ice”’. – Rory Waterman, Times Literary Supplement
