I like all kinds of poems but I tend to gravitate toward eastern spiritual poetry.
My muse almost demands it of me. So you may find quite a few being poured out from time to time.
I all so write many songs, when the poem spring runs dry, as a form of creative writing.
I work with adult learning difficulties as a support worker in the UK. Home town is Manchester. My other interests are in gardening and art. I had a really poor education, but try to improve with every write. I hope you’ll enjoy visiting my writes… more »

    Mark Heathcote has been accidently met by me here. His late entry into PH is nothing before his being a truly prolific writer of poems. Mr Mark retains authenticity and is very genuine in voicing out his thoughts through his short and powerful poems. He says he likes all kinds of poems but he tends to gravitate toward eastern spiritual poetry. I hope to see him championing for more for humanity than for the world of spirituality so that he would make a difference.
    From a random reading of Mr Mark`s submissions I assume that he will soon be very popular in the PH as he is gifted with all the wherewithal for embarking upon the mission of writing good poetry. I wish Mr Mark all the very best ahead.

Best Poem of Mark Heathcote

River Street Urchins

River street urchins
The gutters are swelling
[Waiting] for the sky—you, I
To reach—the storm drains of joy.
Before we go
Before we let go.
We too will rain

River street urchins
Before we go
Before we let go.
We too will rain
River street urchins

Paupers oh, so giving, don't you know.
We'll queue in the streets
And pray to be free
Till we go
Before we let go.
We too will rain
On every official bank holiday parade:

Till we're free till we're free
Till we're free till we're free
Till we're free to go
We'll never ...
