My poem 'Water' for the people of Christchurch after the
earthquake of 22 February 2011 appears on the Christchurch City
Libraries blog "
Words for Christchurch". It was later republished in The
Wellingtonian community newspaper (14 April 2011) in
I offer my sincere condolences to those friends and their
families affected by the devastating quake.
I was particularly saddened by the death of fellow poet Rhys
Brookbanks in the CTV building.
memorial piece about Rhys appears on the Poetry Archive of New
Zealand Aotearoa (PANZA) website.
