About Me

My photo
Born in Belfast, Northern Ireland, now living in Cheshire, England. I started writing poetry eight 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.

Prosing Poetically....



As light as a ticklish feather
Or heavy as a hammer blow
Words may arrive dishevelled
Angst ridden and boisterous
Ready for instant retribution
Notes of lively linguistics simmer
Spitting back in silent defiance
One’s soul emerges onto paper
Fragments bear internal scars
Nervous revelations reach out
Eyes connect worlds of words
A bare line finds a chink of light
Night time confines the darkness
Between the mountain or sea
One is never far from impact
Inspiration dwells in boredom
Or in the sliver of a rainbow
Nature draws its own opinion
Poets translate the intention
Prose rests upon opportunity
No formality or trussed odes
Odd-like concoctions travail
When prosing in poetic style
