Biography of Jane Brunton

Many of my poems were inspired when I lived in Ecuador, South America for ten years (1990 to 2000.) I had never written poetry before but the sheer wonder and beauty of that country was a source of sensory stimulation compelling me to write.

After languishing in a government job for over 20 years I now free-lance for a local paper and have a monthly column on creativity.

Other interests include sculpting in clay, fibre art, tai chi, yoga and gardening.

The man ploughs his field and sows his abundant seed into the furrow’s depth

The man gives the mother nothing but dung and water
Somehow she survives and rouses her exhausted womb again and again to bring forth fruit

She feeds at times on the rotting bodies of her progeny and is satisfied
