I was so pleased to be asked to write a poem for this Pamphlet to raise funds for a local for charity;

Salford Poetry

Adopted Salfordian

I wandered lonely,

not as a cloud

a free spirit

with words of poetical diction

political, just about real life

real people, real lives

spoken word of fact

sometimes fiction.

I wandered lonely,

meandering,

like the Irwell

feeling refreshed

as I drifted into Salford

On a lonely night

I found inspiration

my spirits lifted

musicians, the finest wordsmiths

my mind full of oration

off the cuff, then scripted.

I wandered lonely,

yet on arriving

among Kings and Crescent

performers, audiences, new friends

taken into the bosom

of friendships,

feeling safe in this

‘Spirit of Salford’

I wandered,

never alone

adopted Salfordian

who loves the honesty,

the humour

tells it how it is attitude

in a place

that gave us the likes of,

Clarke, Cooke, Finney,

Sumner, Read, Delaney.

just a few

of talent, of inspiration

for inclusion, in any miscellany.

Salford!

gave me friendships

 words of inspiration

here in my testimony

Salford!

 You, have my affection..

NaPoWriMo2016 Day 7 (Tritina)

Rhiannon
My eyes flash wider as I see the beautiful Rhiannon
shuddering as my body tingles, for she is everywhere
her fans gathering just to hear the beautiful songbird.

They melt together as one entity at the feet of the songbird
hearts lifted and broken by the voice of Rhiannon
following like slaves as she moves everywhere.

Hypnotised to be with her everywhere
the bewitching voice of the songbird
as everyone just wants Rhiannon

taking Rhiannon the songbird into their hearts, everywhere.

NaPoWriMo2016 Day3. Attitude.

Standard

NaPoWriMo 2016 Day 3

Attitude
I don’t fantasise
I don’t adore celebrities
Fans are adornments
Worn at arm’s length.

I can love your music
I can love your voice
I can love your acting
I can love your skill.

I don’t want to be you
I won’t write to you
I don’t want to marry you
I won’t be your stalker.

I have socially met you
You are socially nice
You can be socially rude
So just for the best
Change your fucking attitude.
