With festivals including Diwali, Hanukkah, Christmas and New Year, autumn and winter are all about light – not to mention the Bournemouth ‘Gardens of Light’ now launched in the lower gardens.

So you if have any poems on the theme of light, or fancy writing one, you can send them directly to me at jamesmanlow@hotmail.com, and I’ll arrange for them to be posted on the December online Celebrating Poetry link, and also printed and mounted on the Poetry Wall in the foyer of Bournemouth Library. ¬†Let’s light up Bournemouth with poetry!
