New places of mind.
Peace of some kind.
Travelling the pathway,
One that seems
To a new era
Causing terrain to unwind.
With navigational ties,
Resembling constellation lines.
Along this infinite
Journey of mine.
About the author
Born October 1973 in Whakatane, Robyn was raised in Gisborne for most of her childhood. At the age of seven, with the aid of her grandmother’s typewriter and Robbie Burns books, a career in poetry was forged.
The development of her on-stage persona began, debuting at the Waikato University Capping Review, in the mid 1990s. Moving to Auckland became the catalyst for performing at various open mike events, including Poetry Live.
Making the journey in 2000 to England created many opportunities as a writer and performer. Whilst living in London, she became part of the underground arts scene combining her passions of abstract art, multi-media publication and performance poetry.
Coming home in 2011, accompanied with her son and partner, she returned to the stage shortly afterwards. Attempts to busking lead to the birth of her chalk poetry, which is often woven within Gisborne’s town centre.
