Poetry Archive : En Lighten Ment

Most people don't publish the poetry they muck about with, but I'm having fun playing in public. It is a continuing exercise of looking at how words fit into sentences, that rhyming is no longer a requirement but that sometimes, it becomes almost essential to do just that. Nobody has taught me how this happens, … Continue reading Poetry Archive : En Lighten Ment

The First Time

Everything you will ever need to know about me exists online. No, really, it does. You'd be surprised just how much personal detail has been exposed via the wonders of the World Wide Web since the 1990's, but to make it easier for you I've put together some notable moments in personal history.

Negotiations and Love Songs

This is #Blogmas, and welcome to a month's worth of posts which are supposed to act as a shop window for the site and my content.

Yesterday, a lot changed, but I can't talk about that yet. However, what … Continue reading Running on Ice

The Closing of the Year

After due consideration, our content for December is now finalised. I'm going to use December to re-introduce myself to the World in general via the medium of #Blogmas. It might grab me some new readers, which is never a bad thing. It also gives a buffer for existing content to be built up (see last Friday's … Continue reading The Closing of the Year

Poetry Archive :: Silence

This is an interesting time for my poetry. After a long period of introversion and application, this weekly exercise has become a lot more relaxed and informal than at any point in months and yet is far more honest and reflective. The desire to share my feelings via verse is a lot less traumatic than … Continue reading Poetry Archive :: Silence
