Dragon’s Breath

  I’m not that macabre really. It just turned out that way……where did that demon come from?   My good mate Ken lies innocently in the centrepiece of this construction, though is certainly not to blame! I simply like juxtaposing images and see how that can work, whether they fit. …

It comes and goes- train of thought…

  This poem is based on the allure of travel and how escaping all the day to day routine can be so damn attractive. Facing up to realities and standing still can be the hardest thing, don’t I know it 🙂   Clickity clack clickity clack drink down this endless …

  This poem is written about a wee cottage I frequent in Pembrokeshire in West Wales. It’s one of only about four cottages and is situated on the edge of a beach. It’s about as close as you can get to living and experiencing the wilds of Wales Dylan Thomas …

A tribute to my grandmother

Good things are often said to come in small packages.  Standing at 4’ 11” this would seem an appropriate expression for my grandmother, and, if a homeopathic remedy is a disease distilled to a level of perfection in order to aid and heal others then perhaps this could also serve …

Princess Diana- a death gives birth to a life.

“You cannot be serious” came the rant from the living room. McEnroe was long dead from the tennis scene and now we were being told by the television that the ‘Queen of Hearts’ Princess Di had been taken from our world. The stragglers who had stayed over from the night’s …
