‘Falls were almost forgotten

But, rising changes view.’

Lonely courage knows

One mate is responsible

For its current state

2 Landays

Truth, what support did you show

when courage slept each night with only itself to blame?


Frightened truth how could you leave?

Now, courage lies at night in the steady arms of blame.


Here it is, finally, after many months of work -my first volume of poetry.  Distilled! and A Northern Elegy.

Distilled! and A Northern ElegyThis is a split volume of my collected short and spastic distilled poetry followed by a long poem to/for/about

my hometown and my old town and  . . .

These two halves were written simultaneously and in many ways, they mirror each other.  One half can be seen as snapshots and the second half as a short film.

ENJOY it, share it, talk about it!

Thanks, for all the supportive comments leading up to this book for this blog.
