Biography of Andrew Shiston

I am an Englishman now living in Lincolnshire, England; I am a retired Merchant Navy officer, retired after twenty five years at sea. I write poetry of the sea, and of Dorset, (Thomas Hardy country) I also write novels, one of which has been published. My goal in life now is to publish a book of poetry.
Poetry has always been my passion and I used to write on long trips away at sea.
I have been active and have had some of my poetry published, but not as yet in book form.

Portland

This Island, this out-thrust spit of land
At the end of miles of stone
Where on the farthest cliff-top
A lighthouse stands alone
At sea four rushing tides collide
Sending giant waves againdt the cliffs
Commiting suicide
Leaving scars of giant caves
Filled with dripping stalactites
