Welcome to the website of HENRY NORMAL

Hello, This website site was last updated  – April 2021.
I regularly post on Facebook, Twitter and two Instagram sites. This site contains much of the same information and material as my other media sites but I’m aware not everyone does Facebook or Twitter or Instagram and that the information there is often hard to access other than by laboriously scrolling down. The information here is far better organised and more extensive.
There’s a page here about books, one on my BBC Radio 4 shows, some poems and photos, news of upcoming events and a page of my son, Johnny art .
There’s also a contact page if you’d like to email me.

THE SUNKEN FORESTIn a time before humans could writehere, they looked out from their caveat the tops of trees belowbut the mere movement of water slowly bit away sandstone cliffsand flooded the woodland As fresh water turned to saltoak, birch and hazelbore their last leavesNow at the lowest tide when a storm has washed the sediment If you spy beyond the shingle in amongst the rockpoolsancient roots and saplingsseek the sky once more ...
