Tim Heath writes poetry and, occasionally, gets it published. He was, for many years, an MC at Poetry Live - Auckland's riotous weekly poetry event. He has won Poetry Slams in both New Zealand and Australia and was delighted to be voted Peoples' Choice at the 2019 Going West Festival.
A collection of his poetry was published in 2018, under the title Not as the Crow Flies.
He writes about everyday life - relationships, shopping, parking, love and loss. He believes that poetry should not be difficult and that it's OK if a poem makes people laugh
Time for writing is happily compromised by being a grandfather, reading, cooking, gardening, golf, ocean sailing, watching cricket, tending an ageing Grey Lynn villa … and dreaming.
I hope the poems are self-explanatory. In fact, I will feel a sense of failure if they are not.
