Some years ago, I had a poem published on the BBC Wales website. It was about the Aberfan disaster, which I recall happening very clearly, despite having only been six years old when it occurred. (I lived in the same valley in Wales as Aberfan, and was the same age as many of the children who lost their lives that day.)
Last year, I was approached by a calligraphic artist named Judith Porch, who had been inspired by my poem, and who had gone on to create this wonderful artwork as a result. I thought Judith’s piece should have wider audience, and I’ll also post the poem it’s based on, as soon as I can find a copy of it….
