About Me

Born in Belfast, Northern Ireland, now living in Cheshire, England. Six years ago, I started writing poetry and short stories as a hobby; I've 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.

Renaissance....



At a very particular point in time,
The evidence is clear to be seen.
A precise and measured unfolding,
Life presents itself to the world.
An unravelling and first sighting,
Newness abounds in all its being.
Rebirth of this newly found faith,
Another seasonal renewal emerges.
In realizing that undeniable elegance,
Spring exudes signage of a renaissance.

  1. Dear Eileen
    I had the most wonderful surprise when I came home today.
    Your book arrived.
    I shall be reading your poems tonight before I retire for the night.

    Spring is my favorite season.
    I am always in awe of all the beauty 'that springs up around me'

    Love your poem.
