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 Wellington.
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.
A memorial piece about Rhys appears on the Poetry Archive of New Zealand Aotearoa (PANZA) website.
