Poetry has been a big part of my artistic expression since I was around 16- Working words into sounds, sentences and stanzas feels intensely musical to me and I am enjoying weaving it into my life more.

Throughout Advent I worked on writing and editing some poems, many of which based on the ‘O Antiphon’ season in the octave before Christmas. This is below and you are welcome to look through them.

Poetry forms a part of my prayer life and helps me to accept and express the mysteries of suffering, healing and faith. I wanted this anthology to convey my faith journey where it stands. Not as something certain or rigid, but as something that moves through seasons and brings me closer to the sense of my space in the world.
