As her vision fades, New Zealand's first Poet Laureate seems to see the world more clearly.

Michele Leggott, who received the Prime Minister's Award for Literary Achievement in Poetry in 2013 has just published Vanishing Points - a collection of poetry and prose.

It's also the third in a series of books where she reflects on her family history. She talks to Lynn Freeman.
