Biography

Master Po Known by his followers here at ‘WOL’ by his pen name ‘Po’. An abbreviation of Poemagraphic. Po lives in Gt Britain in North Norfolk. He has been writing poetry since the early eighties. Po has made a life study and practice of meditation, which he started after becoming only the fourth person in the UK to attain a black belt in the Korean martial art of Hap-Ki-Do. He is also a Forth Degree Reiki Master Practitioner. Po has studied parapsychology for over forty years going on to appear on BBC ‘Look East Live’ and having his own weekly radio phone in and talk show on ‘Future FM’. Plus, being a regularly contributor in the ‘Paranormal Norfolk’ magazine. Po is mediumistic. Seeing, hearing and sensing 'dead' people spirts and animals (a great source of both comfort and evidence to 'Life after Death') in the many realms of the spirit worlds. He has Conducting literally hundreds of private consultations and undertaken numerous ‘serious’ paranormal investigations throughout the South East of England over the last few decades. His experiences have been a great source of inspiration for much of his poetry. Is there such a thing as the muse? A question I asked Po. His answer was “From my own experience, the answer is a resounding Yes!” “I know that at times words just seem to float into my mind whilst writing a poem that does not originate from me. I have to look them up to see what they mean, and often how to spell them”. “When it comes to poetry” he went on to say… “The important thing is what is being said, not so much who is saying it!” Please feel free to contact Po either here, or at: poemagraphic@poetic.com The sample ‘Cocooned’ below was the winning poem at the annual Reepham music festival.

Samples

Cocooned Finding new complexity in hand writing dexterity Searching for lost artistry in the guise of poetry At times the images so surreal, in my mind a cotton reel Unravels till a tangled thread weaves a web around my bed Then ‘Itsy Bitsy’ comes to call. Arachnophobia cause me to fall Awaking with a nasty bump, in my throat a ticking lump. As I yawn, a black widow falls and bites my naked toe. Then scampers off somewhere to hide… No antidote to be applied What will now become of me, and my newly found complexity? At the proverbial ‘curling up of toes’, ‘Itsy Bitsy’ runs up my nose, and proceeds to weave a silver thread, that leads me back into my bed A cobweb covered woven duvet, now shrouds a corpse when once I lay Po

Do I am so excited about the idea to get a women to narrate the poem 'Out of his reach'

I will post a request for some help in that endeavour.

It is going to lose the impact if I read it myself.

The list of poets I follow is growing longer as I find 'new poets' that are just starting out and some long time members of the great and good here at WOL.

Reading other poets musings (and recordings) is a great way to pass away a cold rainy day... or evening when their is nothing to watch on old brain sapping box.

There is some great talent here, I enjoy reading the comments sometimes more than the actually poem they refer to.

I spend more time reading than writing and posting here that's for certain.

Thank you to each and every poster here on my profile,
especially the new members.

Dear Ghaz Thank you for commenting on my first audio link. I posted my 'sample' 'cocooned' because of your kind request.
I thought it would be a good place to start, I am pleased you enjoyed it....

Lots more audio to follow Do now I have the studio set up.

I am finding solace in your words Big Guy.

We need to understand the power we have as poets Right Here... Right Now!

If my car needed repair I would go to the garage
If I have toothache I go to the dentist

If I need help with my up and coming poetic musings and 'getting out there' I seek advice from poets and artists that have already done it, who can speak from experience.


We must never be afraid to ask for help.

Colluding with other poets can only be a good thing.

Sadly I feel some fear that their stuff will be drowned, or diluted sinking into obscurity whilst the other partner gains all the glory.

In any relationship it must be give and take. 'Just giving or just taking' will not ultimately help either party.

Dear Po, your poem who am i as a reply to my comment is quite interesting and good. Post it on your blog but change the last two lines with something else.
I got the clue, so don't worry. I love your poems and that is what is more important.

Let's hope it's not just a vanity press.

And beware of the slimy, scummy offers to publish for a 'nominal fee' which usually adds up to at least $2,000 minimum, plus a professional copyedit which is $1,200 at the cheapest I could find.

Small-time authors need to help each other more if they are to be successful. It's this holding the cards against chests that keeps lids shut tight and doors slammed.

The more we help each other, the bigger this community will become, and we may actually carve out a market all our own instead of piggybacking off just straight literature or books in general.

Here's to your first book.🎊

Continue with the graphic poetry, Po. You put out a book with it, I'll be one of the first to scoop it up. You know me well enough by now that you know I never shy from profanity or controversy if it helps open a few eyes and shut a few voices of dissenting idiocy.

Keep your voice strong and I look forward to seeing where this goes.💪

Hi Taylor

Your wonderful poem "The Matriarch" has actually inspired me to write a poem about a forest.

I find it interesting how other poets and artists work inspires us.

My latest poem 'FREEZEING TIME' was inspired by the
Salvador Dali Painting "The Persistence of Memory"

Hi Po,
Thank you for commenting on The Matriarch. I live surrounded by a forest of pine trees, and find it quite inspirational. This one was inspired by the felling of some of the larger trees last summer..

Who am I?

What care I
for fortune or fame.
Desiring anonymity
what’s in a name?
My personal persona
what’s in a guise?
Is there a reason
for assuming a disguise?
Pray I please ask you
don’t patronize.
Who I am, unimportant
what I am, I’ll apprise.
Discretion essential
my professions not obscure.
I wish to reassure,
I’m not a provocateur
People don’t like secrets,
however mine must endure
So I’m sorry Ghazala
no photo for sure!

[I originally posted this on your poem, 'Cocooned', but that same error affected me too, so here is the original comment.]

I don't know what's more surreal: your imagery, or this long ass message I had to read to get to the comment section.😅
(JK)

No, but the third line is superb. Ties the piece together with a single word I believe, but hey, that's just me.

Nice one, Po. (Unfortunately, here in the US we don't "grab our coats", but rather "drop our hats") So, break a leg sir, and keep writing.👍

Keep writing Po, and reading.🎈

Nick There is no secret to understanding others pain if they are brave enough to expound as you do so well in your poetry.

With over three score years I have seen and done a lot of things... some I am really not proud of, but when I glance at the fulcrum I can see the scales tip in the favor of the things I am proud of.

Anubus holds our fate in his hands. However we can drop just one feather from our wings and tip the scales in our favour, regardless of the weight in our heart and soul.

You have great strength in your writing.
You have the power to help those who need to see the path you have trod and follow in your footsteps.

There is a reason for all things.

Po
