Friday Poem – ‘Care’ by Claire Williamson


This week’s Friday Poem is ‘Care’ by Claire Williamson which recently received special mention in the  Sentinel Literary Quarterly Poetry Competition (May 2019), with the judges calling it ‘A beautiful image of fragility, of vulnerability.’

Visiting the Minotaur Claire Williamson

Claire’s collection Visiting the Minotaur was published by Seren in 2018. In this inventive and intensely felt collection, the poet enters a labyrinth of her own complicated family history, a history beset with secrets and lies, in order to come to terms with her own identity.  She borrows from myths, histories, careful observations of nature, and of city life, in order to fashion her artful meditations on experience and mortality.

 

Visiting the Minotaur is available on the Seren website: £9.99
