“We shall not cease from exploration. And the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.”

T.S Eliot

“To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best day and night to make you like everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight and never stop fighting.”

E.E. Cummings

Welcome to what is a bit of an experimental website to find an outlet for some creative writing whether or not anyone ever looks at it! There are a range of poems on the pages within the site, some recent, some older and written in a variety of styles. I love poetry and trying to learn to write it has been a journey of discovery in very many ways but I am so glad I started. There are a lot of people out there with a similar passion and social media has brought many new opportunities for sharing with others, the passions and ideas that make us buzz, without feeling that "if it's not published, it's not proper!

The menu at the top of the page can access some pages of poetry, some occasional ramblings about writing and reading poetry in a blog page, some pictures and images of mine and a page of connections to other websites that might be useful or of interest if you have enjoyed anything on this site. If you would like to leave a comment, please do, particularly if you have any suggestions or passions you want to share!
