Hi there! Please enjoy my latest poem. I haven’t quite figured out my posting schedule yet as I’m currently sorting out some other things, but as I said before I’m aiming for poems twice a week. I think I’ll also aim for a short story every Sunday in line with my Instagram. Bittersweet Mood-dark blend, … More Bittersweet: A Poem

Hi there, please enjoy today’s poem. I had fun playing around with the sounds in this poem – I prefer half rhymes and internal rhymes to full on rhyme schemes personally, and it helps my poems to flow. If you want to get the full effect, try saying it out loud as you read! I … More Caterpillar: A Poem
This was written a year or so ago while I was, unsurprisingly, on a train journey with a connection at Leicester. I hope you enjoy Green, fading to gold from within, pulsing glow, grow tall, uninterrupted by the thousand paths you cross, watch the people pass, unnoticed, and alone, unknown beside false promises of growth.
Hi there! Over on my Instagram, I’ve started doing a “Short Story Sunday,” and I thought it would be good to bring that over onto this as well, as mostly I just write poetry. This is a little story that I wrote on the train today, which I hope you enjoy. John looked out the … More The Tunnel: A Short Story
Hi there, please enjoy this poem I wrote for you tonight! The idea came from me realising that it was late and that I wanted to write something. Not having much immediate inspiration, I focused on that and came up with this. It’ not been edited so apologies if it’s a little rough. I hope … More Running Between Idle Hands: A Poem
This is a little moment I had today that I decided to turn into a poem, which I hope you enjoy. When I cycled up the drive coming back from Sainsbury’s, with panniers full of ice cream and a cheap wok, I startled a green woodpecker off the gravel, and into a tree. It made … More Ice Cream and a Wok: A Poem
Hi there! Please enjoy today’s poem, inspired by some tree climbing I did today, and lots that I have also done in the past – I really do love it! I highly advise reading books whilst up in a tree, it’s very relaxing as well as getting you out of the house into the sunshine. … More Instructions for Climbing a Tree: A Poem
Hi there! Please enjoy today’s poem. My feet are actually cold because the balcony door is open and I’m not wearing socks, but that’s far less poetic, don’t you think? It’s quite windy outside today, and I’m enjoying the breeze and the sound of the leaves rustling. I might go find some socks though… I … More Cold Feet: A Poem
I left food out for the birds, but they would not come while I was sitting there, not until the glass was closed between us. The birds are very good at social distancing.
Hi there! This is a poem I wrote a while ago and have since performed twice, at both of my first two open mic nights! I wrote it to be a spoken word poem, and I’m considering recording myself performing, but I’m not sure, and I don’t have a good camera or microphone, so we’ll … More Poem: First Lines of an Unfinished Confession
Hi there! It’s autumn in New Zealand and we had a lovely day today weather wise, too bad we couldn’t properly enjoy it. The conkers (horse chestnuts) are falling from the trees around my house, but the leaves aren’t turning quite yet. It’s weird not knowing when I’ll be able to go back to the … More The World Outside My Window: A Poem
