About Me

My photo
Born in Belfast, Northern Ireland, now living in Cheshire, England. I started to write poetry nine years ago, as a hobby. I have enjoyed that new venture very much. My preferences are for long and micro-form poetry styles. A first book of poetry ~ Reason Without Rhyme, was published in December 2013. A second book ~ Fifty Seven Pebbles, was published in September 2015...I am presently compiling the content for my third book. Thank you for visiting my Blog which is regularly updated.

Grains of sand upon a soggy sole,
Tracks left behind upon the beach.
Pleasing hours without ticking clocks,
Freedom bestowed a perfect afternoon.
Memories collected in the seeing of it all,
Images captured the fleeting scenic beauty.
Hilarious happenings reveal the merriment,
Reminders lodged in each individual mind.
Mementos regarded with affection long after,
Family love bequeaths another passage of time.

  1. mementos regarded with affection....each memory is like that little bauble we can pull out and look over...gotta love the sweet times full of merriment...and family

  2. I love this Eileen. It's amazing how memories like this can reverberate forever isn't it?

  3. I tuck the beautiful memories close to my heart and treasure them all.
    one that I shall always treasure is a phone call I had from my son just a little while ago, he called to see if I was okay as someone called him about a bad accident in my part of town and he wanted to make sure it was not me ... what a treasure I have in him.
    Love this poem, Eileen.

    Take care, I wish you a very good day

  4. Oh,those magical moments with family. Truly the heart of a beautiful life. Loved this, Eileen!

  5. Memories are treasures and treasured a lifetime. Souvenirs are not measured in money terms but they are priceless. More so when family members are part of it! Great thoughts Eileen!
