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.

Each today,is not ours to trample on. They must be accounted for. We,are only their caretakers. No good blaming lacklustre moons or shy suns. No good blaming those things that cause unexplained tears,let us go past them all,viewing new openings of flowers the memorabilia of childhood,and magical births of stars. Let us adopt ideas of concocting directions around stale thoughts of inferior futures,while preparing to take slip roads to eternity,believing, foolishly or as fully paid up members of saintliness that every one of them leads,to a never ending Christmas. ______________________________________________ Lamenting a flower Wither as you must,lovely Rose bow your head,and gently expire from such a sacred presence. 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. ______________________________________________

Thank you much for the kind words Rose. You write some of the funniest lines I've read on this site and in all of the poetry that I've read. Really funny stuff, but you also know how to get a point across without being sarcastic about it and just confronting it on the page. Thanks, your words mean a lot.🌷

Hi Rose. I have deleted a comment on your Pontius Pilate poem as I feel if you had read it you may have not approved or it, or perhaps of me , as you made no reference to it . I gave it my honest opinion which was a sincere one. Not all your work appeals to me to be honest and I may have rubbed you up the wrong way with my weird sense of humour. Sorry if I upset you. I'm sure what you voice is exactly how you feel and that is the great thing about WOL. I should be pleased if you felt you could put me right on this; if I don't hear then obviously I am in the doghouse.

All the best til' then Rose.

Hi Rose,
Thank you for the lovely comments on my blog. It is much appreciated as a newbie. I haven't had much time this summer to write but there are ideas floating around that just need to get written or typed so I hope you will stop by again.

Thankyou Rose for all your comments not long ago I would not say boo to anyone I've been able to spell because of my iPad and Jemima and learning how to use the computer but not sure . Being able to write things down the world is my oyster i don't need a degree to use my voice love Wendy .
