Originally from the home counties, now in Manchester. Another lifetime ago or so it seems I thought I was a scientist and completed my degree in zoology & plant biology at London university. Making up for lost time I did my English A level at Mancat in 2008, and was bitten by the poetry bug. Right now I'm writing family type stuff, but know when it's out of my system I'll look to the world at wide for inspiration! Juggling poetry with mountain biking and hillwalking amongst other things, but still lurking!
Wife and Mother I have not eagerly sought a blue line, gulped down a budding desire for a plus. I have seen the results of a CAT scan, and been told the sentence is death. I have not embraced a nine month gestation growing clucky, proud and rotund. I endured a similar duration of wiping puke from the mouth of a man. I have not pushed a baby out into this world screaming then start his first wail. I have kissed the lips of a dead man and inhaled as his last breath failed I have not walked hand in hand on the beach with a wizened grey haired old man, I have bought a plot in the cemetary and asked that it's dug double depth. I have not created my own happy ending, Frankly that seems a bit trite. I have found a place I belong to, and sometimes that just has to do.
