Scatterred Fragments By Clare Collins is a collection of poems written when Clare was young. It is a book about teenage angst in an uncertain age after World War II, an age where the threat of Nuclear War hung over everyone like a dark and threatening cloud. It is a book about the pain of falling in love with the wrong people. About falling in love with the right person. A book about solace in nature and the loneliness of city living. A book of despair and hope. Naivety, mistakes and growing wisdom. Of being abandoned, of love in the face of adversity, of being a young and single parent. Poems about an inner spiritual life.
