About Me

i'm a retired commercial pilot now in my 70's.
my hobbies are feeding wild birds, painting and poetry & 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 birthday the following year in june. i wrote the poem 'The Honey Bees' sometime during the making of this book, 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.

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

so from sunny Australia ☀️ 🇦🇺
