Mynah achievement

I meant to use this pic for my "Bird in a Bell Jar" poem news - that poem appeared in Brief - but it sort of fits the theme here. Photo source uncredited. 

Really thrilled to have my poem "Mynah Messiah" in a special International issue of Blue Five Notebook. Huge thanks to Sam Rasnake and Michelle Elvy for including my piece with such a talented line up.

What a tremendous poem - I like poems in parts with musical contrasts.

Got me googling Emily Valentine and her Minah sculptures too.

Thanks, Dominic. Emily's got some really thought provoking pieces. I love "Kingfisher Squadron"...
