The urge to create is universal. As a yoga teacher, I have been tapping into this universal source for more than twenty years and as an actor, since the tender age of five.

In May 2006 I wrote my first poem, inspired, I suppose, by the same spirit that has driven my yoga and creative dance classes for so many years. Experience is slowly teaching me about the technique of writing poetry and giving me the confidence to experiment with different forms, but the initial creative springboard has never changed and continues to fill me with awe.

I feel humbled when I read comments on my work and excited when I am able to offer the occasional insightful one on other ... more »

    RE: A Practical Kind of Loving

    This poem is a kiss on the cheek and a punch in the gut!
    Practical Love...is the kind that hurts the most.
    For in its subtex there could be thousands of
    reasons for this 'hold you distance love'.

    Many times it happens during sickness. The partner
    who is the caretaker, uses this as a defense.
    Fear...sadness all the things the take ones
    confidence enter ones fragile mind.

    Practical Love...I hope no one in my life feels
    that the type of love I need.

    Alison...I have read much of your work
    and have nothing but praise for you.

    You seem to write with your heart whos
    pen was dipped inot your soul.

    Your a credit to this site and any
    other.

    I have read some of your poems which all go to show that you are a keen observer of happenings around you, and have the ability to convert your observations into poems with extraordinary ease, in an attractive manner!
