I am single, live in the UK, in Dorset.I love the countryside and I am greatly inspired by nature, countryside, people and the seasons. I live with my parents at home. I enjoy writing about many topics and my poetry is mainly rhyming , free verse or haiku, or brevity and humour poems. I have always enjoyed poetry writing( and reading it) and I used to write poems, when I was a little girl at Primary school! It is great for getting your feelings and views across and is quite therapeutic!

The homeless man.

The homeless man.

I toss a few coppers and silver, they tinkle, into his tin.
Around me, is the racket of traffic and city "din",
I shudder as I walk away,
hoping someone will find somewhere quieter, for him to stay.

The city is hostile and...

The hyena poem.

The Hyena poem.

The Hyena's lot was not a happy one,
they skulked about looking for food in the hot, bright sun.
Their appearance made everyone , shiver with disgust,
when their spotted forms arose, from out of sand and dust.

They were...

The goblin.

Across the open moorland,the rain was falling fast.
Through the mucky water, a goblin hurried past.
He carried a green umbrella, held high above his head.
His eyes were red and watery, he'd just got out of bed!

His teethe as white as snow,his...

Never look back.

Never look back.

My darling, remember those days long ago,
when we both held hands, through the rain and snow?
How we cheerfully chatted and were full of "fresh" life.
How positive we were , in all of our strife.

We never looked back, we...

Hi Soulwriter -I am really glad you liked my poem and thankyou for awarding it 5 stars!! I am deeply appreciative.Yes, homelessness, and rough sleepers are a big problem everywhere you go and I cannot help, feel sorry for these folk, who have feelings and needs too.My poem tried to convey this message. We in UK, have this problem and winter is the time, us folk, feel their desperation, especially at Christmas. I usually try and help, if I see anyone begging on the pavements. It's a a sad plight...

I chose this poem, because it is about how important flowers are, for any occasion and how words are not needed- the flowers convey the words, by the giving.I too ,am a big lover of flowers, any sort, but there is nothing better then receiving, a beautiful bunch, from someone who cares...
This poem has good rhyme and flow and I enjoyed it's simplicity..
