Biography

I am a young at heart English lady who has been in love with poetry all my life. All types of poetry interest me, from the darkest depths to the totally ridiculous; rhyming or free, long or short. I also like messing around with video, so have set some of my work to a visual medium. Just having fun!

Samples

He Challenged Me To write A Villanelle He challenged me to write a Villanelle. ‘Too, difficult’, I pouted with dismay. He clearly doesn’t know me very well. He wants to criticise me: I can tell. I didn’t like his manner or the way he challenged me to write a Villanelle. And yet, I’m tough, I work in personnel. I’ll write a Villanelle without delay. He clearly doesn’t know me very well. I scribble, scream, throw down my pen and yell. Yet he, methinks, must live to rue the day he challenged me to write a Villanelle. My confidence begins to rise and swell. He’s smugly watching from a way away. He clearly doesn’t know me very well. The marriage is a joke: in fact it’s hell. He’ll get the papers through the door today. He challenged me to write a Villanelle. He clearly doesn’t know me very well.
