Biography of Mike Tonkin

I am 74, and in 1998 had a stroke and my right side is paralysed. I lived in Cornwall, England until I was nineteen then I went to London and trained to be a Dentist, I then worked in London for thirty years before retiring and returning to Cornwall. My poetry is mainly about the things that I experienced and I am writing it to let people know that there can be a good life after a stroke. Some verse was written in the sixties, the rest in the last seven years.

Stroke

I had a stroke,
One minute I was
Michael J Tonkin,
The next I was
......Nothing.
When I finally
Regained conciousness,
I couldn't say a word
I could think words
