About Me

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...

Bittersweet ...

Pleasure or pain
As common as
Falling raindrops
Or streams of tears
Emotions stretched
This way and that
Passing clouds
May tip the balance
Sunshine or showers
Love tries patience
With heartfelt kisses
Or heartless sighs
From a silent mouth
Of deadpan words
