My stories

A Spiritual Scrooge Takes Stock

Charles Dickens was writing about me, he just didn't know it.

Granny Glue

I lost a dear friend in September this year. His wonderful wife stuck with him through thick and thin. Hence 'Granny Glue' This poem is a tribute to a fantastic wife, grandmother and friend.
Gold cherry

Dear Adam & Eve

Spinning

This poem merges the endless rotation of our planet with one or two of the 'spins' upon which some depend.

I really loved the line 'vomiting little white horses...' A great piece of work.  Your poem was almost Dylanesque in it's descriptive power.
