Graham Lindsay


GRAHAM LINDSAY was born in Wellington in 1952 and currently holds the Ursula Bethell/Creative New Zealand Residency in Creative Writing at the University of Canterbury in Christchurch. He has published seven books of poems, the latest being Lazy Wind Poems (Auckland University Press, 2003). He is a past editor of Morepork (Ridge-Pole, 1979-80).

Lindsay comments: ‘It’s a lullaby. I found caring for a baby, an infant, required such considerable attentiveness that the attention was rewarded with observations. “Arepa Omeka” is the Maori transliteration of Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end.’
