CONFETTI TORNADO (2023) features my personal favourite poems made and published over the past ten years, freshly breathed to life with illustration. A parade of the frivolous and foolish, and a meandering among stars, ghosts and dreams, CONFETTI TORNADO is ideal for newcomers to my work, or a colourful sideways new take for those already familiar.

A Mountain Of Tiny Courages (2022), instant download (PDF).

Poetry and watercolour

I purchased this book as part of the complete collection of e-books and had to review it separately because it deserves special mention. It's quite simply a feast for the eyes and the soul. "Love and hate", "Bee", "Strangers", "Incredible" all wonderful examples of why you need this book in your life. Also .. I love typewriters.

Heart expanding Good

Confetti Tornado is my Cats favourite book to sleep on. Cats have a radar for the exquisite.
Inside are wildly beautiful and honest life truths expressed through pages of colour soaked poems.
Heart expansion happens!
Darbys art and poetry reminds me to seek out the cracks and look in-between, upside-down and behind to discover more magic and wonder.
His Poetry in this book gifts me greater capacity to hold lifes contradictions and absurdities.
I laugh a Lot!...Cry...get goosebumps....It's a real confetti tornado experience!
I very much recommend!

A true gem

This book will bring abundant smiles to your face. Darby has a very special way of looking at the world, he makes you realise we’re all just a bunch of idiots most of the time, scrambling for things we don’t want or need; we already have it all right here.

I often go flick through this book when in need of a entertaining little pep talk.

Beautiful and Moving

I am still running though this book daily for inspiration. Me and my friends have spent a good amount of time going through as well. It's like you can't just stop, you have to go though this masterpiece over and over again.
