An attempt at recording the poetic process, somewhat shyly presenting it here, for you…
Writer, poet and photographer. Lover of all musical genres, from acoustic to zydeco. Born in Ireland of Scottish descent and proud of both. "I sought a theme and sought for it in vain, I sought it daily for six weeks or so" WB YEATS Many of the themes here presented and to be presented have taken me a lifetime rather than six weeks. 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.

Hello Kevin. Your presentation of “Sonnet” is beautiful in its clarity and truth. Thank you, sir. ~Beannaichte’
Lovely, Kevin. I’m liking the feather quill.
Such a great idea Kevin! Love the quill – I myself am always scribbling rather unromantically on the back of shopping lists. Beautifully done.
nice…love that you wrote with real ink..and beautiful sonnet as well kevin
i just cant make it happen! i feel so embarassed when i try to recite a thing even to a recorder!
I would love to hear you reading your work, perhaps just relax, let it go, there is only one in the audience, you?
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.
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???
well, in that case that will most probably be in my mother tongue…. so…
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!!!
i too love to hear various languages spoken!
Kudos………….very nicely done. It is great to use mixed media like this. Spoken words, Sonnets,and understated humility. I even liked how you smoothed the paper. Namaste. M.
How utterly endearing this account of your writing the sonnet.
Now I would wish to be allowed to read it, half-baked or no.
