Blowing Up Balloons is the perfect gift for new mothers and all those who know the gift of parenthood. We delight in the joy and anticipation that comes with the arrival of a new baby. We marvel at baby's every achievement and we are nourished by the sense of fulfilment parenthood provides. Blowing Up Balloons invites new parents and their families to share and celebrate this amazing journey, from the creation of a new life through to early childhood. The baby poems in this collection capture the emotions parents experience, from elation and anguish to the humour in so many of those special moments. Blowing Up Balloons shares the expectation of pregnancy, the euphoria of birth and the responsibility and satisfaction of raising young children. Modern parents live a fast-paced lifestyle and yet still want to celebrate the miracle of childbirth and parenthood. Blowing Up Balloons portrays the beauty of these special moments in a way that is personal and down-to-earth, allowing any reader to experience each scene easily and to link the experience with memories of their own. The haiku poems in Blowing Up Balloons offer widespread appeal, easy engagement and depth of experience. Award winning authors, Vanessa Proctor and Gregory Piko, collectively have some three decades of experience publishing poetry in Australia, the United States, United Kingdom, New Zealand and elsewhere around the world. Vanessa Proctor has two school age children, while Gregory Piko has two adult sons and two grand children. Vanessa and Gregory are both immersed in the daily joy that young children bring to our lives. Any parent will enjoy Blowing Up Balloons.

    David Annwn
    Intimately moving over and returning to a valley and fields to the south of Newton-le-Willows, Lancashire, Red Bank raises and interleaves versions of history and experience, amongst them that of a teenager in a school for young offenders in the late 1960s and the battle of Winwick Pass, 19 August 1648. Red bank stands in a nexus of vision: between the costly, oblivious masquer...
