BREATHE DEEP THE BLACK from James Goertel’s new poetry collection, Under The Same Moon, simply considers the idea that we need love to live – that it is as biologically necessary to our existence as the air we breathe.

FLOWER BLOOMING THROUGH ROCK from James Goertel’s new poetry collection, Under The Same Moon, is his love letter to Turkey and the Turkish people whose country is so near to much of the ongoing conflict in the Middle East.


Inhale this night with me,
Breathe deep the black
Leaving the air behind
To those who cannot survive
On love alone;

Exhale starlight which illuminates
Our tongues’ new language
No longer bound by gravity,
Free from self-conscious constraints
To romanticize the moon
With words that only add
To its glow, all we have left
To light a path
Between star-crossed lovers
Still suffocated by day after day
Without one another.




I have not
walked your streets,
stopped and stood in my steps
at intersections where the dust
of your history meets the diamond

days of all you have become
while the world was not looking,
too busy to see your beauty
unfolding, never noticing
the flower blooming through rock
your people have never taken for granted.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
