For National Poetry Day, the theme of which was freedom, I wrote and submitted a poem to the charity Tearfund’s competition. And won!
Read the poem, ‘Dusty Wings’, and watch a video of the Tearfund team reading it out.
“You have a truly unique voice, and you navigate the subject with intelligence, creativity and beauty. There’s a delightfully whimsical quality to the poem that is nevertheless incredibly powerful, building to a genuinely emotional crescendo in the last stanza.”
(Gideon Heugh, competition judge)
