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


FABULOUS FOOTLES CONTEST

Blog Posted:3/19/2017 8:49:00 AM

Show me some humour

I'm looking for great rhyme

Get the ink flowing

Just have a fun time!

 

The footle and limerick forms are proof that poetry DOESN'T have to be stuffy and highbrow ... there is a place for all styles on soup.  I just want people to have a little fun

 

Hugs Jan xx

Hi Jan, I really enjoy the limerick and footle form. Thanks for highlighting them both. Jan your sense of humour is so needed on the soup. PS, I will give a humorous footle a try.I think I did couple but that was a challenge: -) Alexis
