Hello to all friends of Poetry

My name is Kevin Shaw I was born in Ilkley, West Yorkshire in 1955 I now live in Huddersfield and have done for almost 40 years.Married with 3 grown up children and 8 Grandchildren.

I have always enjoyed poetry but only started writing it quite recently. I don't take my poetry to seriously, but it's a hobby and a lot of fun.

My writing and composition could be described as childlike or naïve, looking at life in a quirky way through verse and rhyme. Most of the poems blossomed from a random thought or line, sometimes it makes sense but usually it doesn’t. I like to play with words and enjoy Limericks and nonsense. One or two of my poems are reflective or reminiscent, but hopefully never too personal that they can’t be enjoyed by all.

I rarely write Prose and to be honest, find this form of poetry difficult to read. Prose is often deep, dark, a little bit cryptic. I like my Poetry to be in the main upbeat and joyful.I must admit however, to liking and writing Bittersweet stories.

You will find that most of my poetry is in four line Stanzas, with relatvely equal line length.I find it easier to both write and read in this format. I have written a few Haiku style poems as they are quite challenging.

Inspired by Edward Lear’s book of nonsense and the zany surreal world of Spike Milligan. Other comedic influences are Monty Python, Not the Nine O’clock News, Tommy Cooper, The Goon Show and Lewis Carrolls' Alice stories.

Kind Regards
