Biography

I am, originally, from Nottingham, and now live in Haarlem, the Netherlands. I have been writing down my thoughts since I was 16. https://jonstainsby.wordpress.com/ https://twitter.com/JonStainsby

Samples

Back to Nature Nature, she called to me Come lie down by my side Whispering softly and soothingly under her cool breeze breath Hesitantly stumbling through my thoughts Not wanting to give in too quickly to this request I crawled around the bloody earth for what seemed like an age Crumbling at times Standing tall then crashing down It is time I will lie down with you now.

Hi Jon, thank you for your lovely comment, on The Death of Love..for me it is about expressing emotion but keeping it real without being overly sentimental..but still trying to reveal the true depth of feeling and the fragility of the human condition. I don't know if that makes any sense..Taylor x

Thank you Jon, I am not sure many think animals worthy of poems especially the humble donkey..I do..but then I am biased as I have five miniature donkeys. They are extremely gentle intelligent creatures..😘
