Welcome to my WordPress site and thank you for visiting!

Having written poetry for my own enjoyment since childhood, I decided to share some of it here. I love the power of language, the magic of words, healing properties of humour, soulfulness of poetry, wit of rhyme and the endurance of the human spirit. Originally from Kenya, I have lived the last seven years in France & Ireland. I am inspired by my Three Bears, Mother Nature, the Ocean and life’s little (& sometimes big) ups and downs.

I hope you enjoy my writing – much of it is written tongue-in-cheek – and any comments or criticism are always welcome.

    • Glad you liked my ‘about’ page. My great-grandparents went to Kenya at the start of the 20th century as ‘settler’ farmers, which is how come. If you can get hold of Ngugi wa Thiong’o’s work it’s well worth a read – fabulous satire.
