Where The Love Is, by David Thompson

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.

  1. Intelligent and moving poems – very original but universal themes / points of connection and recognition. Highly recommend for yourself and / or as a gift.
