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.

Healthy Happiness....

The undulating whims of existence,
Seek to twist and turn one’s mood.
Frailties grind and nag at quietness,
Headaches bang with their endurance.
Sounds like to draw faint susceptibilities,
Cornering and cowering in the darkness.
Snivelling and poking sticks in jerky jest,
Plausibility edges towards investigation.
Explanations shift in an amoebic fashion,
Determining touches of sheer magic at times.
Opinions concentrate minds of scented truth,
Alternatives tweak acceptability and popularity.
T’is surely most imperative in this only crazy life,
That one should always seek to indulge in happiness.

Poets United Mid-Week Prompt: ‘’Health.’…


  1. So many details conspire to make us happy and therefore healthy. It's hard to resist. "sheer magic at times."

  2. seeking happiness can sometimes be scary too if we are experiencing lots of issues - say health issues. but if we never stop, we can achieve it. lovely read.

  3. aha...i like the last two lines..

  4. always seek to indulge in happiness... a gem among many others in your poem.

  5. Absolutely, we must "indulge in happiness" at every possiblle moment!

  6. Happiness is great, after all laughter is the best medicine.

  7. Happiness - different for everyone, the key - to find your own...

  8. Life is too short not to indulge in happiness every chance we get :)
