Biography of Sean Godley

Sean was born in Cavan and has spent most of his life in the wild Irish Republican countryside. He was educated predominantly in England, where he gained his introduction to literature and poetry. He did not start writing poetry seriously until 2005 and is still in the process of discovering his true voice. His main poetic influences are Michael Dransfield and Dylan Thomas.
Sean is embarking on a Masters in Writing in September 2006. Aside from writing, Sean has lived a wild life of glorious times with his far flung friends, sometime degeneracy and found God only to forget where he put him. Sean has had scrapes with death and life. When Sean found God, God showed him how to glimpse the mystical undertoes of life. Sean told God that he'd better not have anything more to drink.
In all seriousness, Sean hopes you enjoy what he has written and looks forward to any feedback.

Wild White Hair

The odd time, when I trawl these country roads,
I see the same two women walk along.
Time, like a chip of wind, lives and erodes,
And here has sung his springtime-autumn song:
The road is full of potholes worn with mud,
The farmer’s sheds and tractors brown with rust,
Hedges grow too wild; the sometime ditches flood,
And even trees are flecked with misty dust.
Through this, and in their Sunday best, they walk,

[Hata Bildir]
