62 year old Glaswegian and former psychiatric nurse retired to the Ayrshire coast and full-time poetising. Married to my Susie for 41 years…two grownup kids, Liam and Cassie. Grandweans, Drake and Phoenix.
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, and fashion a momental
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.
