Faking Nature
By Stephen Meek
‘Faking Nature’ is my third collection of poetry, the previous two being ‘the Bad Traveller’ and ‘July’.  Many of the poems were written to commission – many for a Cruse Bereavement poetry event and others for Arts Council funded exhibitions and performances, notably the Bird After Bird and After Bird exhibitions in Brigg.
Conveniently for these events, many of my poems cover the same themes – the beauty and permanence of nature contrasted with the transience of human existence. However, I also perform at poetry readings at venues where more light-hearted and (hopefully) comedic poems are what the crowd expects – so hopefully some of these poems will force the reader, if not to smile, at least to grimace!

Circus Town Mammals
By Robbie Taylor
More poems from the trough, dip in but remember though we seek the cool depths, the scum on the surface is where our reflections come to rest.

By Matt Spittles
Beginnings includes a selection of poems written over the past three decades reflecting beauty and struggle within the natural world and the tenuous threads of human love and loss. These themes are both personal and universal and have preoccupied writers and artists over the ages.
