My Poetry

BloomI write poetry because it connects me to my inner self and helps me to touch something about meanings which make life worth living.

I have taught poetry for over 30 years and I have great respect for the craft. I want my poetry to sing out through the synthesis of structure, language and meaning. I want the words of my poems to work in many ways to enhance the power of the meanings.

I love the music of poetry and how it adds a dimension which it is not always possible to articulate.
I have a poem in a collection called A Speaking Silence by Indigo Dreams Press and a poem in a podcast called Poems for the Road on the link below.

Read Poem: Benediction

My poem ‘Benediction’ came out of an exercise given in my Poetry School course in Leeds and is based on Carol Ann Duffy’s Premonition.
