42 sonnets written in nine months, many on the train between Merthyr and Cardiff, gave birth to Walking on Waste. In addition to these sonnets for modern times, are a series of haiku about Japan, with images of Hiroshima's past and Tokyo today. Also a number of humorous poems written in Merthyr dialect, including a tribute to the late, great John Charles.

42 soned wedi'u hysgrifennu o fewn naw mis, y rhan fwyaf ohonynt ar daith ar y trên rhwng Merthyr a Chaerdydd. Yn ogystal â'r sonedau, ceir cyfres o gerddi 'haiku' am Japan, sy'n bwrw golwg ar Hiroshima'r gorffennol a Tokyo'r presennol. Hefyd, ceir nifer o gerddi ysgafn wedi'u hysgrifennu yn nhafodiaith Merthyr, sy'n cynnwys teyrnged i'r arwr diweddar, John Charles.
