CONTENTS

Chris Hardy

 

Chris Hardy lives in London having lived in Africa and the Far East. He travels to Greece and Italy as often as possible.

 

He has been writing poetry for more than twenty years, his poems appearing in about 70 magazines including Poetry Review, Stand, Agenda, Orbis, the North, Smith’s Knoll, Tears in the Fence, Frogmore papers, Wasafiri, Staple, Slow Dancer, Oasis and Brando’s Hat. Some have won prizes and commendations in competitions including the National Poetry Society’s and London Writers’.

 

His poems have also been included in various anthologies e.g. New Poetry 5 (Art’s Council, ed. Jon Silkin) and he has published one collection, Swimming in the Deep Diamond Mine, (by Hub Editions). This is out of print but available on Amazon and in various south London Bookshops. A new collection is ready, pending replies from publishers.

 

Chris reads poetry, books about history, travel, religion, myth and culture. He was a professional musician once and now plays in the bluesrock band BigRoad.

 

His approach to writing is "I only write when in a particular and required state of mind, produced by a memory, a phrase, an experience. So I often have to wait, as I do not practise eg by responding to suggested subjects or trying various forms. Once there is something to say I know if a poem has emerged if I find I have understood or realised something new when I stop writing. I usually do not know where the initial line will lead, ‘The Bombing Map’ for example, was prompted by the thought in the first lines, the rest was put together by I assume my imagination. Once the words are written I spend time on the shape, appearance, phrasing, terms, beat etc, though I always feel that the first draft is alive and fear that re-working it might weaken and tire it."

Piazza Marina

I took your picture
several times
standing before
the fountain veiled
by fern-like
dropping threads
of water.
I tried again,
you by the harbour
and the church,
St Mary of the Chain,
framed by steps,
columns,
water, walls
and boats
shivering on the sea.
My father took
a picture of me
where slaves had once
been sold.
The film came back
but only trees
and the auction block
remained.
We fly like birds
from frame to frame,
I tried to catch you
so you would
abide like
water, walls
islands, trees
and chains.
