About James Fraser
(Show Details...)
Bloggers Photo

My name is James Andrew Fraser, I reside in Inverness. The Capital of the Highlands of Bonnie Scotland.

Poetry is so new to me, I have been writing for just under a year now, but I look forward to writing to well into the future. My preferred topics are fantasy and nature, but I do try to broaden my choices as my poetry to present shows.

My main hobbies apart from poetry are Music and Art. Many years back I used to do copies of Album Covers, especially fantasy ones, as I marvelled at the likes of Roger Dean and Storm Thorgerson. You can find their work on the Albums of Yes and Pink Floyd respectively.

The bands that I like are many, Pink Floyd, Marillion, Wishbone Ash, AC/DC, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Journey, Foreigner, Heart, Allman Bros, Ann Vriend, Amy MacDonald and so many more. And I love writing to music, nothing beats it in my eyes.

Much of the poetry on the Soup is on my website www.thehighlanderspoems.com and without the Soup, I very much doubt this site would have been created.

My motto in life is, " You don't have to stand on someone to be taller than them "

 

 


Happy New Year from Bonnie Scotland


Blog Posted:12/31/2012 1:35:00 PM
A BIG Hello to the wonderful poets on Poetry Soup,

In this year of 2012, and us Poets escaping the Mayan world end prediction. Isn't it a shame that they ran out of numbers, yet we'll never run out of letters.

As many of you know, in 2012, I've very rarely been on this wonderful poetry site for various reasons. So hopefully 2013 will be the start of my new Mayan calender.

Which leaves me to say, have a wonderful, healthy 2013, and may Poetry Soup grow and grow as our poetry grows.

The Highlander, known as James

    I hope you had a Merry Christmas and will have a Happy New Year. Most of my poems are fantasy story poems. Jack Ellison is funny...more of a limmerick... sort of a thing. Come visit us for a touch of a laugh...
