Moths To A Flame at Cop 26

So darn it!

As the threads of my life unweave

We still need this planet to breathe.

Tales From The Cashmere Hotel

My poem, ‘Tales From The Cashmere Hotel’, will be part of an art installation at Glasgow Botanic Gardens in Scotland to coincide with the United Nation Climate Change Conference 2021 (31st October to 12th November 2021), known as Cop 26. It will also be published in a book of poetry, with an introduction from the poet, Matt Harvey.

Unfortunately, I won’t be able to see the exhibition (or press the button to hear myself read out my poem) so if you get any photos or footage from the exhibition, please let me know. I’d love to see them!

Thank you to the Art and Energy Collective for organising this project. The thousands of milk bottle moths should be amazing.

the collective noun for moths is a whisper…

  1. Having just returned from a trip that included a week in London, your voice rings true with joyous memories. Your poem rings true with life’s inclinations. What a pleasure to hear you read it. Delightful! Thank you 😊
