ICE SKATING IN THE TAJ MAHAL - a totally non-depressing look ... by Cameron Semmens
“Give a man a fish
and he'll eat for a day.
Teach him how to fish
with the right line,
the right bait,
at the right time of day,
at the right sort of spot,
and if he has the right recreational or commercial licence
he may,
with practise and experience,
actually be able to feed himself
and his family
for a lifetime.
And that
is something worth fishing for!”

“Give a man a fish
and a kettle,
and he may never feel its HIS kettle of fish.
Teach a man to fish around for his OWN kettle,
and that’s when you get
a tasty home-made fish soup
that everyone can enjoy!”

Cameron and 3 other people liked Anne Hamilton's review of The Poetry of Home:
The Poetry of Home by Cameron Semmens
"Home reminds me of a playpen—a sandbox of poetry with vivid word-blocks sometimes scattered on the surface, sometimes ordered, sometimes half-hidden. Pick up a poem from the bright poemoir display and you’ll discover the delight of word-games and..." Read more of this review »
