1 Walsall Poem

July 27, 2015

I’m almost a published poet. I’ve been added to a collective effort celebrating Walsall wordsmiths in the form of a curated blog.

100 Walsall Poems is now live, and has been for a little while. My effort is included and I’m rather flattered to have been involved. I met the project curator Peace the Poet this afternoon on my walk from the office to the car.

He’s a pleasant chap with a positive disposition, and well known in the borough as a performer and poet.

By all means have a look at the project, and also check out the other things he is doing. It’s all about community and collaboration.

We have had a guest over the Bank Holiday weekend. Son 3 came home with a Tigger branded rucksack containing a Tigger and a diary (exercise book with a picture on the front) so we could record Tigger’s amazing adventures with his foster family over the weekend.

Firstly, let me say I have never felt so sorry for a cuddly toy. Our idea of an exciting weekend might involve going to the shops or a spot of DIY, or even some gardening. Read the rest of this entry »


Poorly Prepared

May 17, 2010

Regular readers (both of you) will no doubt be aware of my “other” blog – the poetry. I’ve been sticking all sorts of inane verse up for some time, completely separate to the inane stuf I stick up here. However, I felt it was time to come clean. I’m a poet. Worse than that, I’m not ashamed (much) of it.

So, if you fancy a mooch through my musings, take a look.

What’s the worst that could happen, right?
