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.
