A poetry collection by esteemed poet Tim Heath. Tim Heath has had a lifelong interest in writing poetry, but only allowed this interest to progress beyond the occasional dabble after he stopped working as a teacher in 2009. In his retirement he has enjoyed, in addition to trying to get words onto paper, being a grandfather, reading, cooking, gardening, golf, ocean sailing, watching cricket, tending an ageing Grey Lynn villa ... and dreaming.
He enjoys performance poetry and has met with some successes in this field including:
Winner Going West Poetry Slam 2010; Winner Poetry Idol 2012; Finalist Poetry Idol 2013, 2015, 2016; Second Place Going West Poetry Slam 2015; People's Choice Award Bellingen Literary Festival (NSW Australia); Participant in 'Best of the Best' poetry performance, Auckland; Writers' Festival 2017; Winner Womad Poetry Slam 2018
He writes about everyday life - relationships, shopping, parking, love and loss. He believes that poetry should not be difficult to understand and that it's OK if it sometimes makes people laugh.
