I started my journey into the poetic spotlight as part of underground bohemian collective The 4 Poets, writing poems for various events gave me a unique opportunity to gain insight into what makes a poem work live and often far more importantly, exactly what doesn’t! As is the way of life, change happened, which saw me have my Beatles moment and leave The 4 Poets to explore within my own creativity, to finally write for the sheer pleasure of telling stories which rhymed (sometimes!). My first poetry book The Lancashire Poems eventually came out in 2013, closely followed by sister collection The Cheshire Poems. The next eighteen months saw your poet performing across those two counties, and also a little further afield at libraries, festivals, museums and literary events. Fast-forward a few years I have compiled a 343 pages anthology 247 POEMS, so called as it does actually contain 247 poems! I tour across the UK to bring my 247 Poems show to as many of you as possible.


The Jacket Her most treasured possession Fraying Veritably threadbare Once brown Now no longer Original colour faded out Existing only in memory As he does now Grandpops Her adored Grandpops Three years since he passed away His jacket The one he wore come rain or shine Became hers Only hers And the emotions Which came with it She wore it every day His jacket Come rain or shine He somehow feeling closer Protecting her even now As he once had What now? As the jacket His jacket Borrowed from him On permanent loan Now worn by her Gently wears out She cries Tears of despair What now? No amount of cleaning Of repairing Patching up Can save it Things wear out Memories don’t What now? A suggestion arrives from afar Grandpops lives in you In those treasured times His words of love Of humour His jacket Your jacket The symbol Of all he was Find an exact replica Have one made if needs be Like when it was new When Grandpops wore it the first time It’s the remembrance Deep inside Your new jacket Worn In honour of his jacket It will still hold the memories Every single one of them New jacket Same old warmth So she did And it does Comforts her This new jacket Exactly like before Worn with love What of Grandpops old jacket? Framed, it hangs in her den She smiles up at it And dances a happy dance Just as she did with Grandpops So many times Wearing her His jacket
