    It was so lovely to meet you, Donall. I have read your poetry and it is beautiful. But having seen the way you bring it to life in a three-dimensional sort of way, taking the listener right into the scenarios as if you were performing vivid and colourful one-man plays I will no longer 'read' your poems but 'live' them. Keep on flowing.....

    734 poems. Crikey. I didn't know you'd been so busy. I have 60, that cause me limited squirming.

' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' Huh! Poems! (For Onelia)

My poems
are at that difficult stage

teenagers.

They sit around in my mind
all day

doing nothing except
lying there.

I remember
when I gave birth to them

they were so
cute

now they are just so
annoying

scoffing biscuits
over the computer

so the crumbs
get stuck between the words

leaving their dirty
metaphors

scattered all over the sofa

borrowing my similes
without telling me

corrupting words
too young to know better.

I long for them
to leave home

go find a ...

Overflowing

The tin bath
that splashed with laughter

before many a Friday fire
as the stove roared

& brothers & sisters
became miraculously cleaned
of dirt...woes or worries
