Murmurations (poetry)
By Clare Dwyer

Clare lives with her husband in South-East Cornwall and is an active member of Liskeard Poets. Her debut collection ‘If Wishes Were Horses’ (2019) was published by Scryfa. She was also a runner-up in an environmental poetry competition run by The Literary Platform. Recently, she graduated from Plymouth University with an M.A in Creative Writing. She has three children and a gaggle of grandchildren whom she considers to be her greatest achievement.

‘A unique voice that lends a resonant frisson to the era (of lockdowns) that embedded the true meaning of isolation into our collective consciousness.’ Dr Miriam Darlington, author of Owl Sense.

‘In this attentive and quietly powerful collection, Clare Dwyer takes us from the small changes in her garden during lockdown, to imaginative flights through both inner and outer space. These carefully observed poems offer resonant meditations on family and isolation, connection with the natural world and a paradoxical sense of rootedness and unmooring in the face of life-changing events. Dr Ben Smith, author of ‘Doggerland’.

‘An accomplished collection which highlights the pleasures and the compensations of the natural world.’ Steve Spence, author of A Curious Shipwreck.
