d’Verse 2017

A place to collect some of my poems for d’Verse


Cocoa Beach

Towards Troubled Waters.

Are you going away with no word of farewell?

Dreams lie lost amid the sands…

Solway Firth Haibun

Any Old Iron

At the final sunset

Witches brew, Lancaster Castle

The beauty of imperfection.

Jack “Legs” Diamond

Blackpool Pleasure Beach

Looking beyond the madness…..

Whalebone and lace

Missing Ellen


Being able to give… the greatest blessing.

Tears of summer

Seaside sandcastles

Familial traits, the signs we try to hide.

Bring out yer dead….

Summer sunset at Heysham

Fairground Fay

Is Urban Walking a Sport?

Death of Spring

Lai Lines

This Old House


Summer storm 1985

Let’s be clear on why we’re here.

Storm clouds gather over Heysham Head.


Salford Pals

Sunset Silhouette

Stunned silence

We cherish their footfalls

Still young inside my head.

A student’s lament

The clock never stops

They sing for him.

Glasson Dock Revisited.

Fear receding….

The Ghost of Winter past.

Windmills and wave-spray.


Sunset on Mount Tiger

Williamson Park

Transcendental Glory at Morecambe Superdrome


What am I?

Terraceville-Living in the Valley.

Shifting sands

On the edge.

The Pearl in the Oyster

Childhood Haunt.

Social Media and the crimes for our times.

Heversham Head


The Road to Wollengong

The Nature of Leaving

Serenade to E block…..

Crossing over

Childhood remembered

Te Matau ā Pohe

Queen Victoria’s wedding dress

Remembering Wormwood

For Ellen

Ellen has a fever

Juanita the human barometer.
