Treasuring Poetry: Meet poet and author, Chris Hall and a review of Following the Green Rabbit

It was such a thrill to feature in Robbie Cheadle‘s wonderful ‘Treasuring Poetry’ slot this week, hosted by Kaye Lynne Booth on her blog. Thank you, Robbie and Kaye!

Writing to be Read

Today, I am delighted to host poet and author, Chris Hall. Like me, Chris is UK born and South Africa is her adopted country. We both love the bushveld and many of Chris’ poems and books reflect this love.

Which of your own poems is your favourite?

Call of the Maiden is a poem I wrote in response to a call for submissions to a poetry anthology by the wonderful poet and all-round creative, Tara Caribou. I was delighted when this, and another four of my poems, were accepted to be published alongside a whole host of amazing poets and artists in Creation and the Cosmos, edited and published in 2021 by Tara’s micro-publishing company, Raw Earth Ink.

Call of the Maiden

The breeze-caressed veld sways

sending dry waves to break on a distant shore

whirlwind dust-devils dance over bare earth

rising up to be scorched into stillness.
