John Greening on 'Putting Away the Birds' Commended in the Torbay Poetry Competition 2015

'PUTTING AWAY THE BIRDS describes just that, and does so with great precision and avoidance of the obvious. Listen for the brilliantly chosen verb ‘extinguish’ and that simile of the soap. This is a poet looking at something rarely seen and reproducing it in imagery and line-break.'

John Greening
