Clare Crossman (Writing Poetry)


It is with sadness that we share the news of Clare’s passing. Clare had only just started working with Higham. We extend our sympathies to all her family, friends and fans who will miss her greatly.

Clare Crossman 1954 – 2021

We never lose what happens when we
are only in the present. Existing in minutes,
seconds, each day a chance to reach for
who we are, those rooms forever
open in my mind, when I knew
no paths beyond the gate,
did not see how dark can extinguish light,
or that I could become so old, so tall.

Extract from ‘In Torchlight’, taken from the book, The Shape of Us (Shoestring Press, Nottingham, 2010)
