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 prefer narrative-style poetry where you can get immersed in a story, rather than random thought, one-liner-style free verse poetry, which mostly leaves me puzzled. so I rarely comment on free verse poems.

if i haven't made any recent 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 couple of weeks & then disappear for a few months before re-appearing. (busy with other things at home)

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 my 1st poem 'The Honey Bees'.

greetings from sunny Australia ☀️ 🇦🇺
cheerio Carola 👋 😀
