Certainly worth a read…

The High Window

Dear Readers,

Welcome to the Summer issue of The High Window. We are delighted by the growing international interest in our online journal and printing press. This issue sees work from across the age spectrum, from Sophie Reisbord, aged 15, to Maurice Rutherford who is 95 this year, with a range of ages in between!

In previous issues detectable themes have appeared in the submissions accepted, but the poems in issue 6 are incredibly diverse. What strikes us is the language that crackles at sometimes subtle and sometimes loud decibels, and that the poems are profoundly confident in themselves, as if the poets had chiselled their thoughts to the point of no return: this is what I have to say. As Peter Daniel’s writes in ‘Down and Up’:

On the upper side of the cloud cover, God sits deciding
what’s on the cards, sharpening the moon like a sickle.

Tom Harding

I found Tom Harding on Write Out Loud and feel compelled to share my reactions to some of his poems, in the hope that you too, will read and enjoy…

‘A Day Such As This’ :  Visual language called to me ~ I was literally standing in his garden looking at his Saintly Alliums!

‘Late Summer’ :  Playing with perception, another visually intriguing poem.

‘The Secret’:  It can absolutely BE the shoes!  Beautifully, regretfully, poignantly expressed. 

‘Your Shoes’ :  His authentic voice and gentle approach are memorable. 

Tom Harding‘s gently poetic approach and lyrical touch have me swooning with the need to share this new voice…

Now Tom has launched an online magazine:  the Northampton Poetry Review.
