Poetry on The Moor

Thrilled to be asked to headline the first anniversary PotM  event today and to be able to promote my books. I chose to share amongst other things a poem inspired by the Spanish poet Leon Fillipe, who was one of my fathers favourite poets. Fillipe was born in Tabara and fled Spain during the Spanish Civil War and died in exile. As a great coincidence I was in Tabara on the 18th April 2016, during my waling of the Via de La PLata. The 18th April was my father’s birthday.

I am walking in your footsteps

Just in – Amy’s Bookshelf Review

4 stars
Such a grand journey
Kay pens an unimaginable journey in Show Me The Way To Santiago. This is the first book of the Author’s that I’ve read. The path travelled is the route of the Via De la Plata from Seville to Santiago, a distance of 1,006 kilometres, in north west Spain. Kay tells of his journey, his adventures and those who he met, and who shared their own personal stories. It’s more than just a journey, it’s a pilgrimage, and I think it’s amazing that he had the stamina to walk all that way. It’s a very interesting read, and he wrote about his travels, wonderfully. I look forward to reading more by this Author. Show Me The Way To Santiago is a definite recommendation by Amy’s Bookshelf Reviews.

Thank you Amy Shannon

Outdoor Poetry event

Looking forward to being able to share poetry for the first time in a non-zoom context, since before the pandemic began. Four weeks from today in an open space, not far from home, with a number of other local poets/writers, I shall be spouting forth!
