Amelia Fielden (editor) / Colouring In: The Four Seasons of Four Poets
'This collection, composed by international friends writing together, is so much more than a series of responsive tanka on a theme. Reading through it, we can share both glimpses of the authors’ lives, and the rhythms of their changing inner and outer landscapes. They daub from a palette of unfolding emotions and experiences to paint superbly crafted and memorable canvases for us to enjoy.' - Marilyn Humbert
We were enjoying a blissful life, making the most of every day. I, the poet, was still rather bemused by the freedoms of retirement and Stephen was doing what he loves – publishing. Our idyll was rudely interrupted when we were told that Stephen had cancer.
