** Featured Poet **

This month’s featured poet on Days of Stone is Jennifer Calvert – a fellow writer from Australia.

Jen’s poetry is modern and edgy and she’s making quite a name for herself, with a book to be published very shortly. Full of powerful images, a lot of her writing exists in the borderlands of the magical realms of fantasy, faery and many more besides. Juggling the responsibilities of mother, student and writer is no mean feat but Jen does it with style and pours her heart into each piece she produces. Her website is beautiful and varied and always makes me feel as though I’ve slipped down the rabbit’s hole…

Rabbit Run

Build a kingdom,
On noon,
A royal headache and prattle,
Boys, watch out,
The queen is on the lookout,
Heads will roll about,

Shock me, with your razor tongue,
The palace likes a little drama…
