Some have taken mere moments to arrive. All are offered freely and it is my hope that you, dear reader, will gain something by browsing here and that I in turn will gain something by presenting these works to you.

      1. i dont know, an year or so back a friend of mine requested me to recite something so he could hear my voice- i honestly tried! but cat got my tongue right after i pressed the start button of the recorder.

      2. Perhaps one day, I hope so, it would be genuinely lovely to hear you read your own or some favourite works, I’m with your friend on this! Maybe try with something you love but not your own, a piece that says a lot to you may empower your voice???

      3. that would be lovely! I also write, read and perform in an ancient language, Gaeilge( Gaelic/Irish) How I feel and how I write are different between the two languages. I was at a poetry reading Friday night where poets read in French, German, Russian, English and myself in Irish, the various sounds were gorgeous!!!

  1. How utterly endearing this account of your writing the sonnet.
    Now I would wish to be allowed to read it, half-baked or no.
