I was on the radio!

  Hello you lovely peoples! David Driver, Drystone Radio, hosts a wonderful show called The Writer’s Bookshelf every Tuesday at 7 pm, they have book reviews, short stories, poetry readings and author interviews. I met David at the UK Indie Lit Fest earlier this year and he invited me down to Drystone Radio to read out some of my poetry, have a chat about my book and talk about my Superman shoes… Not everyone got the chance to listen live on Tuesday so here’s the recording for you to listen to at your leisure.       Continue reading I was on the radio!

Wednesday Haiku’s

  Grab the paper now, Set the story flowing free Read all about it! Sprinkle fairy dust And think a happy thought now, You’re doing it Peter! Unidentified, Tricholomataceae, Animosity. The peaceful night-time Invaded by my dark thoughts When will I be free?   Don’t ever let anyone make you think you’re not good enough.  Follow your dreams right now! Don’t wait until tomorrow,  next week, next year. Stop planning, start doing 🙂 ‘Blind faith is no way to run a world’ – Victor Stenger R = A x EIM x t From <http://theinevitableyou.com/the-law-of-attraction/&gt; Continue reading Wednesday Haiku’s

Wednesday Haiku’s

  Watch the sunshine fade, The remnants of the day, Gone without a trace. The mirror shows truth. A reflection cannot hide. A story, so sad. Sweet sticky buns, A tasty treat for tea-time Sugary goodness.   Running, running, fast You will not escape from me, Keep on running, fast.   With a cup of tea, I can take on the whole world, Nothing can stop me.   Don’t ever let anyone make you think you’re not good enough.  Follow your dreams right now! Don’t wait until tomorrow,  next week, next year. Stop planning, start doing 🙂 ‘Blind faith is … Continue reading Wednesday Haiku’s

Just some Haikus

  I enjoy writing Haiku’s. They seem so simple because you have an easy set of rules to stick to but it gets harder and harder. Especially if you want them to make some sort of sense. I could write total gibberish to be honest and sometimes I might. Wednesdays from now on will be my Haiku day. I hope I don’t start repeating myself 🙂 Enjoy ♥ Where are you going? The girl on the bus, where? Will you make it there? I am not a thing, I possess much more than that. My vision is set. Time is never … Continue reading Just some Haikus

Sadness

I wish the rain would comfort me each time I shed a tear,  if this were so, we’d all be drowned within the year. There is no way to hold  them back, the fear and pain push through, the emotions cloud my thoughts, the tears obscure my view. For a moment I catch the sunshine, it plays upon the wall, A smile flickers for an instant, the joy before the fall. I feel your presence around me, I know you’re always there It doesn’t quell the loneliness, it’s more than just unfair. I started writing this poem months ago when … Continue reading Sadness

Poetry rewrite..

  Here is a poem from one of my favourite books of poetry, which I have had since I was a child, The Fireside Book of David Hope 1984. Mary Rebecca has a special friend whom none of us can see, She always gets invited when Rebecca comes for tea; She doesn’t like to wash her hands and never eats her bread, And always wants to start to talk while grace is being said. When the meal is over she’s the first one out to play, She hurries from the table without asking if she may; She likes to play at hide … Continue reading Poetry rewrite..
