‘Ode’ to a limpet!

Looks funny to see little old Warrenpoint among the more exotic locations of the poets in this issue of The Heron’s Nest! 🙂


The published poem was inspired by summers back in the seventies when I used to to spend the whole day on the beach with my brothers and sisters. We caught crabs and eels in the rockpools opposite our house and generally got mucked to the eyeballs (my mother’s term) on Maggie’s Island while collecting mussels for bait … once we used every towel in the house to get the silt off our shoes – a method I don’t recommend if you plan on getting a bowl of ice cream after lunch. 😦

Congratulations to my haiku friend John McManus for having his Neverland poem selected as the Editor’s Choice. Well deserved, John. 🙂
