Every week I want to share an amazing blogger with you all, an idea I stole from my pal Shauny. (mwahaha), so you can check out their blogs and maybe make some new friends!
All of these bloggers have amazed me with their art, kind heart, friendship and skills.
You ready? Here we go!
A little about Richard
Hello everyone. Thank you for stopping by for a look. I hope you enjoy some of the poetry and stories on the site. I shall try to post something new here every day so that there is always something fresh for you to see.
As for me, what can I say? I was a company director in retail until finally plucking up the courage to show people the writing I had spent years shyly stashing away. Joining Harper Collins’ Autonomy site was the jolt I needed to realize people liked what I wrote. I am currently one month away from achieving a gold medal there, (Geez! I hope I haven’t just jinxed it.)
I love reading, writing, all sport, and walking through beautiful scenery. If I lived in view of a mountain with a stream running through the bottom of my garden I would probably never again surface to the outside world.
I recently resigned from my job so that I could spend the rest of my time on the writing I love. Regardless of if I make a success of it I will never have made a better decision in my life.
Thanks for reading this, Richard.
Richard is an amazing poet and writes like a maniac! Seriously, this guy? Even I can’t keep up with him! 🙂
This is one of my favorite poems by Richard
Hush, my darling, don’t you cry
And evil things will pass you by.
For not an hair will evil harm
With fallen angel at your arm.
To watch you cry in blessed sleep
Still cuts at me though not so deep.
My duty now to care for you
In previous ways I couldn’t do.
To drift in draughts from windowsill
In shades of grey I wander still,
Below the clouds that line your dreams
This angel’s with you so it seems.
And though I cannot touch your skin,
In cursed death I feel I win,
For limbo price I gladly pay
To be with you for all your days.
