Biography

Hi all.Back after much needed break,in order to concentrate on moving house and overcome usual mountainous inclusions of diy etc,also trying to keep my old bones in shape by regular'ish gym attendances.Single parent of teenage almost twenty year old daughter.My age? don't dare ask! Nevertheless,I am now ready once more to toe the poetry line again and hoping my somewhat grammatical restrictions and depleted share of the English language won't affect my presenting 'reasonably' decent poems. That said,I honestly think that being 'restricted' in this way,makes the challenge that much harder and if that challenge is overcome resulting in 'reasonably decent' poetry being composed with the limited use of words,then personally,I think it is as good an achievement as one written by those fortunate to have access to the full extent of our wonderful language and in most cases,easier to understand. I do recall reading somewhere about a well known poet,who once said "don't try to be too clever when writing poetry". ok-I'll try my best not to-yeah right! So unless I accidently swallow a dictionary,I shall do my upmost to hopefully produce some 'reasonably decent' poetry. Cheers all.

You have been a perfect part of everything beautiful,a daily miracle that once danced towards the sun. Gone shall you be stooped with aged growth to sleep in your scarlet repose. A spirit of my memory,reclaimed by the eternal dreaming seed of rebirth. ______________________________________________

I hear Big Sal did disappear
Quite a way away
Seems he was bit naughty
On WOL, which didn't pay

Hey,
I actually mostly empathise with you because of my Spanish-it isn't my first language so I find writing poetry in it very challenging. However I do also wish I had participated in English creative writing classes!! ...Oh and that I hadn't been set back vocabulary and reading wise by a brain injury ahhahahaha!! X

I totally agree that the restriction of your "depleted share of the English language" (tho it's not true) makes your work more interesting. I find it much more difficult to write something without sounding pretentious or forced, than using long words. Or even to write something simply and it still be interesting-without the use of too much 'glitter'. Very jealous xxx

Just had a bonza run through your work. Glad you share my Antipodean style of humour. Don't they just tell it as it is. Had some wonderful experiences out there until I got to Alice Springs a way back, then climbed Ayres rock with a tour party. Upshot, I went off in the Flying Doctor plane back to Alice with a major heart attack being grounded with the Abos at the local hospital for a month. I was travelling alone but when I was given the green light to travel again on the Ghan train a month later, a whole platform of people had come to see me off. Always held the Aussies in high regard after that. Keep writing. Your work has appeal. But the best part is, it serves as a kind of creative therapy to us all. 👍 Bestest. Philipos
