On 21 August 2019, I published my “Selected Poems, (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07WW8WXPP/). The book encompasses poems composed by me between 2013-2019, and is available in both a Kindle and paperback edition.
I am delighted to announce that I shall be releasing a further collection of my poetry in June/July 2020.
As a taster, I have included below my poem “Dead Stop”, which appears in the forthcoming collection:
“Perhaps some things should not be said
They can not be said
Meaningfully by me.
As does nearly always happen
My train stopped, dead
(Though not for its proper, brief
Stay). We did not pull away.
What can be said
(Not experienced by me)?
Perhaps some things should not be said
When, that evening I came back
We made good time.
Though a drear
Thought did cross my mind,
But I find
That some things can not easily be said
By me, as I sit here, warm
Thinking of the ajacent platform
And how our train stopped, dead,
But, perhaps some things should not be said
Or at least by me”.
At present my collection is untitled. Therefore, in the time between now and it’s publication I need to come up with a meaningful title for my book!
I will, of course keep you updated on the books progress here.
