David Thompson, 90, has released his second volume of poetry, Where The Love Is.
“In his first volume of poetry, Days of Dark and Light: Recent poems (Hobnob Press, 2021), David Thompson responded to the Covid-19 pandemic with an eclectic collection of poems of wide-ranging forms and subjects. In Where the Love Is, he continues his exploration of themes close to him – memory, imagination, love, nature and the environment, and the links between poetry and other arts. The poems, including several prize-winners, are wise and articulate, sometimes romantic, sometimes lightly whimsical, often poignant. His poetic narrative brings together a variety of forms and moods in an elegant, entertaining and very personal voice.” Hobnob Press
The book includes a slightly revised version of the poem ‘Love Languages’, which won our Flash competition in February of last year. And you can read David’s answers to our Quick & Quirky Questions here.
