This is the seventh year of my writing poems. I’m committed to posting a minimum of one a week in 2021. I’m experimenting, playing really. You won’t like all the poems but if just one of them fills you for a moment, rings a bell, awakens a dragon, or just gives you an ah-ha moment, I will be content. I think of them as small animals I have captured for a few moments in my hand.
Previously I have published books of memoir, Common Table, Common Ground, Common Lives, Changing Lives, novels, and children’s books, It’s now time to scale back, to minimise.
My life is always a discontinuous narrative.Time to write is unpredictable and starts with a clearing of clutter off the dining room table.This is in no way meant to excuse the quality of the poems. They are the best I can do. I do spent a great deal of time reading or listening to other people’s poems.
If you like these, please tell other people about them. Poetry is a gift and should be given freely.
