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.

Quietude is what you like best,
It moves and motivates you.
More than a second thought,
Always first in mind every time.
You influence, animate and exalt,
Urge details if must is a requirement.
Outside rules not boxed into pro forma,
Free spirited and free style in counsel.
Complimentary and considerate in heart,
Sheltering shades of imminent darkness.
Your presence warms and entertains,
That is the quietness and essence of you.

Poetry Jam Prompt: ‘Quiet.’…


  1. some of the most quiet people I know...can also be the most influential....even with just their presence....

  2. What a lovely tribute to a quiet person. I like this very much.

  3. There really is something about quietude....and when it is accompanied by a complimentary and considerate heart and warmth of spirit it is a real gift.

  4. Your poem made me think of some kids who can be very quiet at times and yet have a very strong presence.

  5. Quietness and essence. I like this combination! May we all reveal ourselves in that way...

  6. This piece, for me, illuminates the great difference between a lonely person and a quiet person who is at peace in solitude. Lovely!

  7. Beautiful… I think silence is a gift,for some it comes easy for others it is a deep struggle.

  8. Well said, quietness has it's own importance :)
