I am not a poet!
That is what I keep telling myself anyway!
A poet is someone that takes the literary form very seriously and it would appear that I tend to be quite the opposite. I just enjoy playing around with words to create something enjoyable to read, something to make people laugh, something to make you think or just say “what was that?”.
Who cares as long as it provokes a reaction?
Yes, sometimes they are a bit of fun, sometimes a bit grim, sometimes thought provoking, but at the end of the day what poetry should be? Entertaining!
I have been writing “poems” and rhymes for quite a few years now and I didn’t realise how many I’d done until I put them altogether in one place This book is the result of that.
There is quite a variety and hopefully something for everyone. There is no theme or message I’m looking to put across, no particular order to read them in and no agenda but for you to take pleasure in the power of words, whatever order they come in!
