Swollen hands embrace

glorious warmth in the crisp

air of almost winter.




Hannah van Didden lives in Perth, Western Australia, with her husband and their three children. As well as playing with words, Hannah chases butterflies with her little people, eats mindfully, and fixes broken projects. She likes to think that her shower voice is particularly suited to jazz; others in earshot may not agree. Hannah’s short pieces can be found in Southword Journal, Quail Bell Magazine, Gravel Magazine, the Other Voices anthology, and on her writing blog–https://37thirtyseven.wordpress.com/–and she hopes to have her first novel published soon.
