Was born in the late 40's and just recently enjoying life in retirement. (the bus pass is a God send in these times of high petrol prices). My poems are mostly spiritually based but I do include other themes Have just started to read publicly at a couple of poetry reading venues and really enjoy it. A while back I privately published my poems and collated them in a book called Constant Streams Look forward to reading all the poems in here and noticing the differing styles Thank you for the site and the work that has been put into it


On Realising Spirit What is this pearl I see That hides beneath its Shell The colour of the Moon I have not sought it in deep spirals Nor on Pathways mirrored by Hell But I have looked within the Heart And as the flower opens it velvet eye and the scent of Love spreads its arms So shall the flute song of the Lark Inspire the wondrous Dawn to Break Bursting open as a fan Its Golden colours make Thus extols the Life of Mankind His Spirit Once thought mysterious to the Mind Shall now declare its Truth

Hi of good cheer!
Remember when the world was engaged in a great world
war, yet Christmas was celebrated unstintingly by those
affected and gave comfort and consolation to those
most in need of it. The films and songs produced during
that perilous time are still with us - and will remain so.

Hi Jean, thx for reading and commenting on my poem 'Preen' funny, looking back it marked quite a change in my life about a year ago. Sometimes you have to take a risk in life :-)

ON REALISING SPIRIT = absoluty amazingly well put together piece of poetry.....the on going metahphors running through poem are very effective, especially in the opening stanza.. the personification of flowers and love works very well and the structure provids a good flow and rhythm....truly remarkable piece of work...thanks.

Like your sample Jean. I too am drawn to the spiritual element of poetry, but mine aren't as accessable as yours. Well done.

Good Morning Jean Lucy,
I am so pleased that my words struck a chord with you.

I have read your profile with interest and great incredulity... having looked at your profile pic I am very much of the opinion that you have an oil painting in the attic. I am going for a bath in asses milk as soon as I have finished writing.
Once more so many thanks for reading and commenting.

Hi jean Lucy. Re artist block - try local life drawing classes. I started like that - went to life drawing classes and found it inspirational ( though now i don't go there). Best of luck! Thanx for reading my poems. X
