A Chaos of Delight

April 26, 2017

A Chaos of Delight was the working title for a collection of poems recently published under the title of Finding Sanctuary at

The working title refers to Charles Darwin’s description of New Zealand when he briefly stopped there in 1809 and is also referenced in my poem In Godzona.

I am beginning to think that I should have retained the title for the eBook as the publishing of a polished version is proving to be ‘a chaos of delight’.

My fault entirely as I mistakenly uploaded an earlier version of the manuscript which I had spent several hours bookmarking, hyperlinking and linking back to the list of poems in the table of contents.

As soon as I realised the mistake I tried to rectify it by uploading the correct version, which works beautifully as a word document, only to find that it has failed to convert. I am now in the process of trying to find out how to put that right.

The poems and the words are all in the right order even though the technicalities are proving to be more challenging than I remember.

So, in the meantime, if you would like to read the collection and feel you can forgive a few formatting issues, please download a free copy from
