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 animals and birds seem to exist only in books now.
Or were they someone’s fantastic imaginings – the ravings of a mad man?
The rivers and woods are as silent as my book of colored pictures.

Or are the creatures trembling somewhere hidden from OUR cruel fangs?

God made a big mistake giving us dominion over these gentle things.

If in fact they did exist.
