What is poetry town?

Poetry Town began in 2015 with a weekly poem displayed in the window of Kirkdale Bookshop. Following overwhelmingly positive responses from customers we have decided to partner with Sydenham Arts to build on the idea and fill Sydenham with poetry­ not just by famous poets but by local people, both young and old.
My Woman’s Transparence by Amina Said (1953 - )
2nd August 2017

my woman’s transparence

has the whole sea

as its mirror


my sea-spray is born

of the salt of its peaks


my voice plays echo

to its thunder

and to its murmurs


we were

as one sea-swell

when we strode

toward land


we joined hands
