Categories Blowing my own trumpet Poetry ‘1,000 miles from sea’ in London Grip Post author By Peter Kenny Post date September 1, 2017 No Comments on ‘1,000 miles from sea’ in London Grip Me standing by withered crops in a drought-ridden Chad, Oct 2015, photo Matthew Hunt My poem ‘1,000 miles from sea’ is published in London Grip this morning. I wrote this after visiting Chad, and seeing its struggle against drought and hunger. This poem is about how the conditions there brought my personal struggle with religion to a head. I’m very grateful to Michael Bartholomew-Biggs the editor at London Grip. As ever, it’s well worth a visit, and includes this storming response to Grenfell Tower by Naomi Foyle. A must-read poem.
