My dear friend, poet and short story writer, Maureen Cullen has another of her poems – Strawberry Tarts and Swan Vestas – published today, this time on the Amaryllis Poetry website.
Maureen is a Scot, so there’s a smattering of Scots dialect words. If you’re a sassenach like me, you may not understand all of the words but you’ll get the gist. And truly, her voice is one of the many joys of her work.
Just sit back, read and let her imagery take you away to Clydeside to smell the pipe smoke and taste those strawberries.
It’s lovely to share my own successes with you but just as lovely to share the successes of writer friends.
I’ve posted Maureen Cullen’s work on here before and for those of you who read any of these posts (Home Sweet Home, The Children’s Panel, Leaving Annalise, Primers Volume One) it will come as no surprise that Maureen has been published again, this time on the Ink, Sweat & Tears site.
Maureen’s poetry often takes the everyday, the grit and grist of life and pulls beautiful threads from it, spinning something that reflects and accentuates reality, making the mundane special. She’s a truly talented person.
Do pop along and read her wonderful work – Alcluith – on the site or visit Ink, Sweat & Tears’ Facebook page.
