Donations are essential to keep Write Out Loud going    


Hello poets and lovers of poetry, this page journals thoughts and feelings. It also features an expedition from written poetry toward its spoken, more 'natural' mode of being. A renowned artist once made famous a continuing and sentiment that echoes right across the history of humanity: "they don't really care about us!" Poetry allows us to get a little of our own, back.

Ebooks at Kindle/Amazon

Beginning this year collecting my poems and making them available on Kindle/Amazon at minimal cost. Perhaps this is your thing, or perhaps you may know of someone to whom this would be useful. This little volume attempts to exemplify a range of emotion and style of poetic expression that hopes to bring our reading thoughts to a wider appreciation such as Vermeer had explored the interplay of light and shade. In a season of hostilities and armed conflict spanning the globe, The Waking Lights lifts up a glimmer of hope that is grounded in reality, even in its painting in of life's darker shades. It does not shy away or deny both realities of shadow and light.

Autumns last leaf !!!!!!!

Comes Autumns decaying messenger
to deliver its stories ending

already I feel the touch of winter
starting to demoralise
coldly vanquishing any heart kept memories of summer
that it vainly attempts to retain

underfoot the spring awaiting greenery
begins its subterraneous surrendering to sleep
in protective anticipation

while above this dying season
is preparing to unroll its stage of finality
as the gatherings of starkly limbed trees
look on like dumbfounded skeletal witnesses

glad I was able to keep my promise Frederick. 👍
