Having lived many lives and travelled far, I am settled now in Cornwall, in the inspirational Tamar Valley. I have been writing for many years, but my time has mainly been filled with raising my beautiful children. I run a monthly poetry group in my home and I also teach poetry to children from time to time, at the local school. I am also an artist.


Contrived Collective Larks, in exaltation Goldfinches, charmed Crows are murdered Whilst kittens are kindled Mice are mischievious And jellyfish get smacked Cats are a nuisance Whilst nightingales watch Rattlesnakes rhumba Whilst snipes merely walk Leopards leap upon the implausibility of gnus People huddle under the enormity of bad news. All My Love, To You Maybe I should use rosy metaphor; The vernacular; oh, I'm just not sure. Telling you I love you must be perfect, pure As baby's breath caresses mother's skin, Optimum amounts of fun, fizz and comfort To wrap you in. Awesome Myriads of Brazillian butterflies Sipping mineral salts from the sand Along the banks of the Juruens River, Translucent shades of eau de nil Gold, white, lemon, Hazy pale shocks before the pristine Soft, azure blue velevt That is the sky.
