Lifetime Achievement Award


On Saturday April 15th I was honoured to win the Lifetime Achievement Award at the South Yorkshire LGBT+ Awards evening held at the Library Theatre Sheffield.

Many thanks to those who nominated and voted for me.

Also thank you to my friends at Friends of Edward Carpenter for their support.

Single Awareness Day (February 14th)


Single Awareness Day

 

February fourteenth is Valentines Day

another chance to fill the coffers.

A card, flowers, presents to give

commercialism filling their pockets.

One day just to say, I love you

 

Promotion, advertising

pushed at you since the New Year.

Magazines, newspapers, television too

just to say on that one day.

I love you

 

Emphasis on couples,

sharing their love.

Why do they need a special day?

everyday should be special.

If you love someone so much

 

How does it feel to be single?

grown tired of all this hype.

Many different reasons, for being single

cherish your life, cherish your friends.

February fourteenth is,

Single Awareness Day

Days

(Word Lune 5-3-5….5 verses)

Dry days Wet days, sigh

Dark days sigh

Long days Short days, sigh.

*****

Healthy days Illness days, sigh

Poverty days sigh

Bountiful days Starvation days, sigh.

*****

Good days of life, smile

Beloved days, smile

Good days of family, smile.

*****

Days with a partner, smile

Children days, smile

Days with your parents, smile.

*****

Days of sighs and smiles

Days ever-changing

These days are just yours.

The warm quilt captive

from solstice to equinox

Just Saying How It Is

Single Awareness Day
