Poetry in a Pear Tree is dedicated to my parents. The sense of humour we grew up with, is threaded through many of the poems. I also had a chance to talk about some of the different forms of poetry we have studied over the last year and take them for a test drive 😁. It is a book that is easy to read, with the cut and slice of life interwoven with light-hearted moments. My foreword and thank you section gave me a chance to mention many whanau and friends who have coloured the days along the way. Poetry in a Pear Tree is the most personal writing I have produced to date.
