Biography of Diarmuid Duggan
A childhood spent in Birmingham, England, and Co Limerick, Ireland and most of my adult life in Australia, with a few other places in between.Not one for the 'conventional' rules of society or poetry writing, for that matter.But do enjoy reading all forms of poetry and, with my own writing, I tend to focus on my own observations of the human condition.My initial interest in poetry was sparked by my English teacher while reluctantly attending secondary school in Newcastle West, and to him, I tip my hat.
I sat down to switch on the computer,
a news paper about to be read.
cigarette smoke came through a window,
a tabby asked to be fed.
A kettle boiled in a kitchen,
a spoon in a cup standing by.
A farmhand mustered some sheep up
for shearing, while its still dry.
