About Me

i'm a retired commercial pilot now in my 70's.

please don't ask to 'friend' me if you haven't reviewed any of my poems, 'cos i won't oblige. the whole idea of this site is to write your own, & read & review others' poems, ie. sharing.

i also don't comment on poems i don't understand -- 'cos how can i remark on writing that mostly leaves me rather puzzled, free verse is one style i don't really comprehend.

if i haven't read or made any comments on your poems, it's because i'm not always logged in here, so please don't take offence.
i tend to be here for about a week or so & then disappear for a few months (doing my family history) before re-appearing.

my hobbies are feeding wild birds, family history, poetry, painting & writing complaint emails to politicians about their frequently stupid policies and decisions.
i also sign an average of 5 online petitions every day mostly on animal welfare issues & sometimes about human injustices.

my poetry journey started at the end of 2007 when i made a 100 page scrap book for my oldest granddaughter's up coming 8th birthday the following year in june. during the making of this scrapbook i wrote the poem 'The Honey Bees' , so i've been writing poetry a relatively short time compared to others here on writer's cafe.

i wouldn't call myself a romantic, my poetry is often about life issues that annoy me greatly, or things i really like, & not much else in between.
