Born in the NW of England, I have been an amateur poet for many years.
Much of my work is influenced by my childhood and the working class estates, I grew up in. However, I am widely travelled and include poetry about Iraq and Afghanistan. My main influences are Edward Thomas and Elisabeth Bishop and there are many themes of countryside and coast in my writing. more »

Comments about pete Hall
Strained light illuminates a cell wall
The candle of a saint.
Not yet framed In the history of the English
The nave of the North East washes sin
Rollers from the German Sea.
Haul heavy Prayers onto winter beach.
A congregation waits
Mute lambs, oft fleeced, now with hope
From a man who walks unaccompanied Into woods of oak.
Where grim hangers
Melt into hillsides.
Homesteads and barns
They have no light
He does not walk alone
