Under the Skin is Monica Taylor's third collection of
poems, offering memories from books, pictures,
people and places, and looking below the surface
to illuminate meaning.
Contentment is not enough
excitement is needed too,
sometimes found when
memories return to tease –
did I really do that or say and think
Hindsight creates a new perspective,
gives me another memory
for another day
to look in different directions,
new vistas open
to explore and store.
Monica Taylor thinks of poetry as part of living."It's very important to me. It opens up ways of looking at the world."
