Just a little bit about Poems Set Free….I’ve been writing short poems forever…..now I’m setting some of them free; back into the ether to see where they land.

I enjoy the process of playing around with words…..waiting for a poem to emerge. I never force a poem…..they unfold spontaneously from something I’m feeling or observing. If I find myself overworking a poem I just scrap it, as the essence has been lost. Mostly it’s a mystery to me where they come from. I plan to share a few of them here, and hopefully they may speak to some of you out there in ways that are connecting.

I also enjoy taking photos of beautiful shapes and colours, especially graffiti….. I hope you enjoy them too.

Please feel free to get in touch or send me a comment here.


Many thanks to anyone who takes the time to visit. You can follow Poems Set Free on Facebook too.
