Born 1978 in Rotherham, South Yorkshire, U.K. I have written sporadically throughout my life and I have a degree in Journalism from Leeds University (1999) I began to write poetry at the beginning of the first lockdown in Spring 2020 as a way of coping and recording my emotions. It was also a time to pause and reflect on the past. My poetry reflects some of this and also various bouts of love/infatuation and drinking at my favourite bars in my home town.


Easter Sunday I went for a walk On that Easter Sunday Afternoon, As there was nothing better to do. I emerged through the trees, To the path leading to the beautiful homes And gardens. A dishevelled old man approached, Showed me half an eaten apple, That he held in his hand, In the other was an empty Bottle of lager. ‘Is it much further, To the lake, At Ginhouse Lane?’ He asked, As he wanted to collect water, For the blue flowers, Arranged in the nearby garden. It was a very warm day, On that Easter Sunday. © S.Bennett 2021
