Martin Hayden was the featured reader in our August meeting. The meeting was held via Zoom, as we still cannot meet face to face, but it brought the added benefit of a second visit by the Australian poet Michelle Poole, who joined us from Melbourne.
For Michelle it was 5:00am and she was a day ahead of us! Virtual meetings do have bonuses! (Should that be ‘bonii‘?)
Martin read poems about his visits to and voluntary work on Iona from his new pamphlet, Good Ground Beneath My Feet, which can be purchased here: michaellaskey.co.uk/shop.
This is Martin’s introduction to the Iona poems:
