Poems Inspired By Nature

Today I felt like sharing a different source of inspiration whilst also connection with my favourite muse: nature of course! Instead of browsing through my travel photos or watching Attenborough yet again, I decided to dig out some old books and some favourite poets.

The Legacy of the Blue Macaw

I don't have many connections to Sao Paolo. Passing through it's bustling and somewhat cold airport a few months ago, I couldn't have felt further from Brazil's rich rainforests, immense diversity and un-contacted tribes.

Over 12 million people in the UK tuned in to watch the opening episode of David Attenborough's Planet Earth II - and if you are anything like me, you were watching and you were moved by the male buller's albatross, waiting patiently on his nest for his mate to return to him after many months...
