A Portrait of the Poet with a Rabbit



I recently had a poem accepted by Leaf Press. They asked for a 'quirky' photo of me to accompany my poem and biography on their website so I sent them this one of me reading to Anya, our old rabbit who passed over the Rainbow Bridge a few years ago now. She alternated between being very affectionate and quite aloof so we didn't spend all our time together like this!

You can read my poem 'Return' on the Leaf Press website.

What a beautiful picture.
I think you enjoyed Beatrix Potter's books when you were a child!

Great picture -- the rabbit sounds like she had a personality like a cat -- cuddly but only when THEY want to, not necessarily when you do.

I'll go read the poem ...Congratulations -- and you picked a great picture.

Anya was a pretty bunn! A big fluffy.

You're obviously reading the story well, Juliet. Anya appears to be listening with anticipation.

The photo says a lot about you. It shows you're a book lover and an animal lover, definitely my kind of people!
