Born to British Parents working in Nigeria, the family moved back to UK when I was only 6 weeks old. Have written poetry for as long as I could hold a pen and songs for about 8 years. I am into traditional music and song, am a member of Cornwall songwriters, play the celtic harp, violin, tenor banjo, penny and low d whistle and the irish drum, the bodhran. I am married with 2 daughters aged 24 and 20. We live in North Cornwall and have a dog named Dobby and 2 cats, Neville and Luna.I write because I love to write, I hope you enjoy..... I welcome your comments, kind or unkind and understand that different people have different tastes and that my taste may not always be yours..........Oh the beauty of diversity!

I made a castle in the sand
It looked like you
The sun dried it
And it crumbled
To nothing
I re-built the castle in the sand
And protected it from the sun
But the rain came
And washed it
All away.
I'd like to build the castle again,
But there's no sand.
