It’s tricky to get meaning into so few characters but I’m enjoying the challenge. I tend to tweet most of them but I’m going to start saving some of my favourites to this page. The marsh tends to feature pretty heavily as I run across it most mornings and it looks pretty spectacular first thing. The first poem ‘Home’ is also tattooed on my left arm.
