Thought I better get round to writing a bit about myself. 

I'm married and live on the Isle of Man 

My poetry journey began in November 2013 after my husband was diagnosed with cancer. The first poem I wrote was called was Splendid Isolation. This was written after we returned to the Isle of Man after his surgery in England. I felt so alone and vulnerable in the accommodation  - all I really needed was someone to talk to face to face and maybe have a hug! I posted a few poems on a friends facebook page - mainly humerous poems . An on-line friend Jenny Brewer saw my poems and kept telling me to join here. It took about 3 weeks of her asking me if i had joined to pluck up the courage to finally post and 'Just Desserts'  was the first poem I posted here - it is based on a true experience! Since then my life has been a whirl.  In Jared Pickett's collaboration I teamed up with Darren Watson and we wrote together collaboratively as JaDazzle United.


I adore penguins - the animals not the biscuits!
Loveeeee tall men with greying hair
I love baking/cooking
I like to potter in the garden - need more time to commit to it but have an aged mother who needs me more than my garden does
Adore most types of music - will give anything a listen
Best ever gig - Knebworth 1986 when 'Queen' headlined

Blog Posted:6/15/2017 4:04:00 PM

Newer members may not understand the other blog which was recently posted. The blog refers to my At The Footbridge Limerick Collaboration, which currently stands at number 22 in the best all time poems on soup.

 

https://www.poetrysoup.com/poem/at_the_footbridge___limerick_collaboration_809737

 

As a result of the other blog there has been a resurgence of interest in the poem and I have added 3 new poems to the collaboration this week and another poem was added earlier in May.

Many thanks to Lin Lane and Ray Gridley for their hilarious contributions. 

 

If anyone wishes to join in the fun then please soup mail me your poem.

 

Hugs Jan xx
