I started writing poetry and short stories in my late forties. I find it fun, and therapeutic too.
I grew up surrounded by books, and they are still my constant love.
I have one published poem in an anthology entitled, 'Still Life'. The publisher is United Press Ltd.
Some of my work also appears on the 1066 Art Gallery website: www.1066artgallery.co.uk
Behind this smile is a host of mixed emotions.
Like a scared rabbit I want to stand stock-still
In the stare of headlight-eyes.
She sits in the lamplight and
with carefully crafted quill
pens out her most precious thoughts.
She loves him still.
She drifted in with the mist
As if kissed by the air
Floating there in the half light
Blessed by time and the sight of home.
