Haiku for Andy Murray
The start of a new year and hopefully more joy for our country. Katrina Shepherd’s haiku series was first published in Poetry Scotland: Luckie Mucklebackit (Winter 2012/2013). She celebrates the success of Andy Murray and his visit back home to Dunblane.
With a love of the living beauty of the natural world, Katrina is often inspired by people and nature.Â Her haiku are published in Canada, the USA, Australia, New Zealand and Europe.Â Some have been given awards.
Katrina’s poem In the stillness is now a Christmas carol with music composedÂ by Sally Beamish.

November is the month of the Holy Souls. We remember our loved ones who died.
I think that this might be the only poem ever written to mention the Rhinsdale Tavern in Baillieston.
“Good Morning” was published in September 2010 by Diehard Press.
“Charlie Gracie’s poems are quiet and clear, in love with nature and all of the possibilities of being human and alive.Â As refreshing as a cool drink of Scottish water on a warm summer’s day.” Alan Bissett
“‘Charlie Gracie’s poems give voice to the quiet moments in life, delicately observed and tenderly described.” Magi Gibson
