#Poetry Ockham NZ Award Winner 2019

by N@ncy




57 poems
I enjoyed 23
….that is 40% which is a good score.
Helen Heath writes about science, grief and motherhood.
The poems dealing with personal loss, death and birth were the
most memorable.

Favorite poem? “The Owners”
Ms Heath leaves the reader with an impression of sadness.
Ray, James and Gordon are men who have fallen in love with their
customized life-sized dolls.

I sympathize with these doll lovers….even if I’m shaking my head.
