Door slamming.

Heels on deserted pavements echo

The lure of cash.

The girl’s heart beats fast.

An act;

Her life a car crash.

Forthcoming Poetry Collection

A friend asked me recently whether I intend to publish a further collection of my poetry. The answer is yes, I aim to publish a further collection in early 2016.
Drawing together the book will entail reading through poems and determining what (and what not) to include. It also means deciding which poems to publish (as is) and which to amend. Finally the book will be proof read by a professional proof reader. As regards the latter, I always publish my poetry as written by me (poetry is a very personal thing as it expresses the poets inner soul and it is not, in my view the role of a proof reader and/or editor to suggest changes to the language and/or style employed by the poet. I use a proof reader to check for typographical errors and to correct punctuation by, for example replacing a comma with a semi colon where necessary).
As with my previous collections, I intend to include poems on a variety of topics, rather than producing a book replete with nature or humorous verse and nothing else,as this is what I personally look for in an anthology/collection of poetry. Variety is as someone once remarked, “the spice of life”.

PB with text 01 small

Two Voices


You talk to me of lambs gambolling, of ramblers ambling, through fields green, beside the meandering stream.

You speak to me of verdant bowers, where lovers while away the hours, in love’s young dream.

I tell you of an urban street, where the gale buffets and people battle to retain their feet.

I impart to you the wind’s loan moan, as I wander home alone, in weather bleak.
