Liam has a photo exhibition called Voyage to the Beginning of the World up at Javabean Cafe this month and, as there are only 11 more days for you to see it, I wanted to give you locals a kick up the bum to get in there and ogle his photos whilst enjoying some cake and coffee.
To accompany his photos, Liam asked The Tunbridge Wells Writers to share poems and short stories inspired by the collection. To me, the photos are about companionship and loneliness in old age, so I wrote a poem exploring that theme. A few friends have recently asked if I’d share the poem again, so I thought I’d do that here.
All photos by my talented friend, Liam Rogers.
