Hurunui River

On sunny mornings when the sun is
just rising you can see the
Hurunui’s dreams, you can see
the sky, the sun, the clouds
in the water, you can see the world.


“… imaginative beyond her years. Her lyrical explorative poems show well crafted control of both form and content, as well as a fine feeling for words. A most impressive début.”
— Barry Southam
