The aim of this blog is to help you find inspiration to write your own poems.

I’m not about to try and teach you how to write poetry, although you will find hints and ideas here. This is not intended to be a comprehensive list of all the poems you should read, nor is it intended to replace or supersede anything already written about these poems. These are poems that have inspired me to write and I’ll try to explain why for each one. For me, these poems are signposts.

This is me. Below the picture are some links to some of my poetry which has been published online and details of publication in print.
