These illustrated poems were created, one per day, during April 2013, for National Poetry Writing Month, an annual international event. I was reading about cosmology at the time, and as I took my habitual walks across the marshes of North London, I pondered deeply upon the dimensions of space and time through which I was passing, as well as existing euphorically in the moment with the first stirrings of spring. These poems followed naturally through, allowing me to weave a pattern of deep emotion through a weft of scientific fact. The illustrations were created from my own collection of vintage paper ephemera, and a great deal of digital manipulation. Any scientific images I used are credited in the following notes.

Save Lea Marshes (SLM), is delighted to support Hackney Tree Musketeers by selling their “Hackney Trees Calendar 2019”, through our website shop for the second time.
The 2019 calendar features some beautiful and varied examples of our much-treasured local trees from the parks and spaces around Hackney - from January’s snowy Giant Sequoia in London Fields to the dusky-lit Sycamores on Well Street Common. I am at a loss to name a favourite but maybe November’s True Service tree in Clapton Square in autumnal splendour, struggling near the busy road of Mare Street is a source of wonder and pride.
As well as some usual information on Bank holidays, the calendar also marks the start and end of British Summer Time, the movements of the moon and the turns of the solstice. Of particular note this time is a pull-out year planner for 2020, which has a tree poster on the reverse in a clever bid towards recycling. The front and back pages are reserved for information about the Tree Musketeers and its annual report and summary accounts, so that when you buy one you know exactly what you are supporting – an organization which not only plants trees but more importantly maintains and fights for them.
