54 year old psychiatric nurse and itinerant poet looking
forward to retirement to the Ayrshire coast and full-time poetising. Married to my Susie for
33 years…two kids, Liam and Cassie.
Having been doing this for a few years now, and beginning to understand where the writing is going, I’ve worked out that my main concerns are
Trying to find a genuine dialect voice to speak of all things childhood
Trying to learn from the old Imagist blueprint
Trying to find an honest way to address the passions
Trying to paint my words plainly so others can literally see their colours
Trying to learn the difference between painting and sculpting a poem
I hope those who read will find something to touch/identify with/remember, be it a poem or a couple of fortuitously placed words.
