Poetry Church

An appropriate post for Sunday: This week I received my book-bound Poetry Church Collection vol. 18 via Royal Mail from the moors of Yorkshire. Inside sit two of my poems, published as J Sudborough: “Heavens” and “Handiwork.”

You’d be correct in assuming from the collection’s title that this is a Christian collection. Many of the poems are inspired by Bible verses, others take the form of prayers. Most in the form of ballads. My contributions are extended metaphors in free verse, thus require a bit of thinking–as does Philip Comfort’s “papyrus maker.” And Patricia Lucas paints three lovely portraits of spring flowers in “Snowdrop,” “Daffodil,” and “Hellebore.” As Julia Connor (my workshop leader from Surprise Valley Writers’ Conference) said, “Poetry is big enough for all of it.”

Cheers,
J.S.
