I was very happy to see that 8 of my poems were a runner-up in the Blue Nib Chapbook Competition. The 8 poems are all about my son, Emrys, most of which had their foundation in the small hours of the morning as he settled down after a feed. I left them alone for a couple of years and came back to them to scrape off any sentimentality and eye gunk from them. I also learned that the technical word for eye gunk is gound so I must try to make a poem from that! You can read all the poems here.
