Les Derbyshire

Biography of Les Derbyshire

I now live in the 'West Country' of England, in a village, in a quiet valley. I'm sure that this has an influence on the way I write and certainly on some of the subject matter.

I've always enjoyed good descriptive prose and a wide variety of poets but came quite late to writing my own poetry. I find that sometimes, when the germ of a poem starts to form, it helps me to write the 'story' in the form of poetic prose before working it into a more poetic form.

Oh, The Joys Of Travel!

Take an airport, any airport.
Yes, any airport,
From Bangkok to Baltimore,
They’re all the same,
I could be anywhere in the world.
A place of limbo,
Of suspended animation,
A criss-cross hubbub of humanity
Intent on being somewhere else.
