In my profile I listed poetry as one of my interests. I've been writing poetry on and off for about 30 years and have been published in various serials including PoetryNZ, Takahe, Kokako, Bravado, Haibun Today and Southern Ocean Review. Much of it is about the mountains and valleys I enjoy so much. So nearly ten years ago I collected a number of poems on that subject and had them published. It was a great experience. There are 72 pages containing about 54 poems and 16 photographs. About 450 of the 500 have been sold so there are a few left if anyone likes to buy one. They are NZ$20 and can be obtained by contacting me at my Email address. Here are a couple of short poems from the collection.
