My poetry seeks clarity, hope and humour.

On some days, a poem is ‘given’ and what a wonderful feeling it is to receive.

That joy grows as I share this precious gift with fellow poets who know what it takes to write poetry that makes us, the poet, happy.

I am an imperfect poet and choose to convey feelings, and the many discoveries of our life’s journey, with clarity rather than over-compliance to form.

My output is, of course, subjective. I love hearing responses to it both sympathetic and contrary, for this is the nature of art.

Thank you for reading, and perhaps commenting, on my work.

Falling in love, were even lower... more »
