Storm Claim this poet

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ NOTE: 5 Feb 2011 - Dear All, I have deleted and then reinstated all my poems on my page so I could get rid of the bad atmosphere, 1-ratings and nasty tags there have been of late. I know this means I won't be in the leaderboard but that's OK.I want to start anew and more importantly, see if the number of rates match the reviews. If poems continue to be 1-rated, then I will know that Ian is/was not the only one cheating here.I apologise to all those who have previously commented on my poems. I am sorry your comments are no longer there.I regret any inconvenience caused. Happy writing to all! :)~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~I am an enigma wrapped in a mystery ~ a flowerchild of the Universe. I am well travelled and love learning about different cultures.I have been writing poetry for 30 years, the last three of which I have written in earnest.I laugh my way through life and tears, searching for enlightenment. I don't suffer fools gladly.I am here to write, it is my passion. I am influenced by music, lyrics and the poetry of many people, too many to mention.I don't like pedestrian poetry or purple prose. I am never content with my poems, always striving to improve. I welcome critique. more…
