With her poem “This Word Is not the Right Word” Eleanor won the Second Prize in the First International WeArtFriends Poetry Tournament in 2018.

This Word Is not the Right Word

Your face, half hidden, is a lake at dusk.
I see the iris of our eyes is the same.
We are looking,
And we can see Andromeda –
Her crystal self unfurling
Two point six million years of space,
The sparkling span of her rushing to touch us
