Quote Left Poetry is an oral art form, when a poem is recited aloud(preferably by the poet) a unique 'as is moment' occurs with the listener. NOTE:This is much thevsame as happens each time one views/touches a work of art. Quote Right

Youtube audio link to hear me recite from my PS anthology


I am English and began writing poetry at the turn of this century.My early interest was in short forms,.I created and promoted quite a few here on PS (perhaps my best known is the Footle).With encouragement from a member here I moved onto to longer forms,publishing my poetry in print,blog ,twitter and kindle ebook form.I came to conclude that all poetry is structured prose and remains a work in progress until recited aloud, (the apex of our art form) when a unique experience 'an as is moment' occurs between voice and ear, much the same as the experience that happens when viewing a work of art

Check out my short forms @strandpoet on twitter and my kindle poetry guides on amazon and some of my artwork to  accompany my youtube clips of my poetry recited aloud
