After being a regular member of 24 hour arty people, I became one third of Trio Writers, running work shops and a bi-monthly evening of poetry and music billed as Poets and ... at Bolton Rugby Club. After a break from writing over the last 18 months, I am dipping my toe back into the water to get back into the scene attending Guitar and verse and Write Out Loud Bolton at Butterflies Bar with a view to possibly start performing again.


FREEDOM Body anchored securely to bed My head starts to drift And lift up high and loosen It's grip on life to soar And roar its way through All blue skies and cotton Clouds, making me feel Surreal and so much more alive Than during any waking hours. I haven't dreamt of flying While lying here For quite some time.

Hi Manda;

thanks for the comment over Ticket to Ride. As stated somewhere else, this poem was a pleasure to write - you should have see Cathy's face when I wrote it as I was literally watching her sit outside talking about the area.

It did her the world of good to get away for the night, and I think we are going to go again maybe September to see a show.

See you Soon
