The Bed By Jenny Dunbar

The Bed
 
I am the occupant of the bed, my limbs stretch freely
bound not out of habit, nor duty to comply,
the cool fragrance of new linen, its thrift of excess and economy of purpose
surrounds me, holding the small hours.    

Graduating from The Royal Central School in London, Jenny followed a career in the performing arts. Writer, singer and potter she has moved in many worlds always inspired by the juxtapositions in life. She is a published writer of poetry and fiction, her debut novel, Sweet Earth, was published in 2014 followed by her own anthology, Thoughts of Time, in 2016. Jenny’s work has been  included in anthologies and journals over recent years. Currently working on prose poetry, having completed a novel about supernatural ballads, she finds making bread a necessary distraction in these troubled times!
