'This collection comprises 60 poems from authors ranging in age from 12 to 89 and located in the West Indies, UK, Ireland and Europe. Some contributors are seasoned - even famous - poets; some beginners; the only brief we gave folk was to send us a poem for Haiti. Some have responded directly, or elliptically, to the traumatic events on and after the earthquake of January 2010; others have sent a selection from their recent work as gifts to the people of Haiti. All of them have given their work for free, the aim being to swell the fund for the reconstructive work on the island - and of course to provide a good stimulating read.'
It was such a small thing to do, donating my poem, Second Coming to this anthology for the people of Haiti. I hope the book continues to sell well to augment the funds for this, the most worthy of causes.
