Biography of Dean Bottomley

I have been scribbling silly verses since I was 10. A lot were written to help with bad feeling, like when my Dad died when I was 10.5yo, and when I had other serious problems in my life. I think being able to scribble silly verses got bad feelings out of my head and helped to keep me going mental. Now I am TRYING to learn to improve a bit.

I am going to remove my poems and leave the site as it is not giving me what I had hoped for. I can see that there are so many poems posted every day that it is impossible for mine to be seen and critiqued as I had hoped. That is the way I thought I would learn but can see now that it is not likely to happen due to the number of other far more excellent poems posted every day.

A Wonder

Once I held a wonder in my hands
It was not mine but was, for that brief time, for me.
Beauty, wonder, a feast for heart and eye
Mine to care for, cherish, love, and for me to love.

And love I did, with both heart and mind.
But that wonder gave back to me a thousand fold.
Gave back more than I knew how to give.
Scared I drew back, with open hands I let it go.
