My name is Robert Haigh and I was born in West Yorkshire, England, where I have lived all of my life. 

I have been writing poetry, short stories and songs for many years now. I have posted poems on more than a dozen poetry sites over the years, and I post songs (originals and covers) on my You Tube channel. The link to my playlist can be found below.

In addition to writing, I also play guitar and ukulele and sing. I am also a keen photographer.

I choose not to enter any of the poetry contests here, but good luck to those who do!

Just letting everyone know I'm leaving the Soup for a while. I recently paid for a 2-year Premium Membership, so I will be back - but not for at least a month. Many of you won't even miss me, but I'm hoping a few of you will! Happy writing, everyone! I hope to be back before too long. Regards, Robert.

Love the pic, it is a poem. I don't recall us ever crossing paths, but then my recall button isn't reliable. Whatever the reason for your absence, I hope it is good, at least ultimately. I'm sure your light will remain on here at Soup. Go in a good way ... CayCay
