Life is po­etry to an Ati­a­muri boy

South Waikato News - - ENTERTAINMENT -

An author raised in Ati­a­muri has re­leased a col­lec­tion of po­ems.

Craig An­gus Piercy now lives in Amer­ica where he has pub­lished Ti­tled Re­flec­tions of Life, a book he hopes will in­spire read­ers.

Piercy never thought him­self ca­pa­ble of writ­ing po­etry be­fore first try­ing in 2004.

Since then he has penned more than 300 po­ems.

Re­flec­tions of Life is an an­thol­ogy of po­ems about life, love and ro­mance taken from per­sonal ex­pe­ri­ences, ob­ser­va­tions, thoughts and feel­ings on an ex­tremely im­por­tant sub­ject – liv­ing.

Piercy’s par­ents owned a shop in Ati­a­muri while he grew up.

He vividly re­mem­bers that while do­ing a paper run on his bike ev­ery morn­ing be­fore school, he dreamed and tried to imag­ine what he would be do­ing later in life.

Piercy is mar­ried to Lisa and has a daugh­ter Guil­iana.
