At eighteen I penned my first poem, now in my fifty first year, with my family reared, I have penned hundreds of poems. In my cabin out the backyard where I write in serenity, the peace allows my creative mind to flow and I do most of my writing from there. Writing is about the most passionate thing I’ve ever undertaken. I also write fiction and none fiction stories. My debut novel ‘A Druid’s Legacy’ will be published later in 2017, can’t wait. I was going to publish the novel first but decided to publish my first volume of Poetry instead. I have been mulling over which poems are right for this volume over the past couple of years. I am glad to be finished that process and happy to publish some of my most intimate insights in the form of Poetry.
While observing the mind’s workings
In the midst of my deepest dread
Then watching the dramas unfold
On the screen inside my head
Vacuumed to the darkest place
It would be less painful to be dead
I stepped from pain to passion
And wrote this book instead.
WATCHERS of the MIND
To be published Summer 2017
