    It was a lady without a charm dressed as it was. She looks like she is staring at something.

    CJ is, predominately viewed as a writer of works for children, yet those works contain an approach that crosses all age groups. Her works can be humourous or filled with pathos. Her use of words can paint a picture of innocence that contrains its own profoundity. 'Daddy's Boots' is a perfect example of how CJ approaches her work. It is at once a portrayal of innocence and a need to abandon that innocence at times of trauma.

    Her children's works have an incredible universal appeal and if one is tempted to dismiss them because CJ classes them as Children's pieces, then you do so at your Peril.

    In her non-childrens verse, CJ carries over her approach to more adult themes. In doing so she presents a world that is deeply sad, incredibly humourous and sometimes intimate.

Best Poem of C.J. Heck

A Man I Knew

There was a man I knew
and just knowing him
made me think of poetry.

Loving him, I learned
that accepting love
is as important as giving it

and the not-so-subtle difference
between loving lukewarm
and loving red-hot.

Love like that
can make you stupid -
a total-immersion kind of stupid,
but it made me want
to read poetry.

In a different time
and a different place
it might have worked

but it was over
and when the last page was turned
he was only a man I knew

no regrets
just one perfect ...
