I trained as a fine artist and spent my working life in the education service. For the past 24 years I have lived in central France and spend much of my time painting but piano, poetry and a large garden are also important occupations.
Popular Poems
Night People
Light shines on roofs made silver by the rain
Turned dazzling golden mirrors by the sun
As tiles some ancient armourer had begun
To fashion from a hard metallic plate,
Life Goes On
When your energy goes
Your lights go dim
It happens to her
It happens to him
A Glimmer Of Hope
What could have been
Should have been
Might have been
Just wasn't,
Dizzy with the prelunch wine
I try to connect a scattered brain
So as to invent, think up, create if you like
A thing worth painting, writing, making.
The Old Men Dance
The old men dance in the spring or would like to
And some believe it makes spring happen.
Others alas can no longer dance
And believe that spring dances around them.
