I love poetry. It is the best medium I have found to try to make sense of life and our place in it. I have written many poems over the last 30 years under different pen names in addition to my given name. Some published, some lost and forgotten forever. Sometimes I pretend I'm a famous poet publishing works for my adoring fans. Other days, I could care less about being famous or even known, I just have to write to give oxygen to my suffocating soul.


I will create a sample now, on the fly... Bubbles the Clown So, you want me to perform for you like a circus clown? Make you smile instead of frown. Look up instead of down. OK. Just let me paint my face, put on my costume, and stand on this stage. From this safe distance I can blow bubbles and give your heart a warm embrace.

Come dance with me V

Another wonderful mixture of words splattered upon the page to titillate and engage all the senses.

You have made me think more about an audio book myself, going back to an old poster who knew a bit about this kind of stuff (see the second comment... the one after my very first post to you below) The Big Guy was right on the money Vautaw, you should perhaps think about letting the world at large hear your voice... The voice of the free!

Hi V
Thank you fo your continued support and inspiring poetry.

I have noted your last comment about the information age....
I am about to write about the huge dangers being faced by our children and grandchildren due to becoming addicted to mobile phones and the stress and depression it causes.

WiFi is our worst enemy and our greatest of allies

Keep posting V

Hi Vautaw, thanks so much for your comment on Fingerprints. I've only been on the receiving end of a poem once (as far as I know) and it's quite a special feeling. ? Tx

You’re most welcome d.knape. The sign reads, “DANGER. Do not climb on kissing rocks.”


Mon 11th Feb 2019 00:27

what is that thing on your profile?
and....what does the Danger Sign say,
it is too small to read.

thanks also for your comments on
"We Never Asked".

You recite poetry well, you should consider doing it for your own audiobook or something.
