Nature’s Gold is my first book of poetry and many of the poems are about nature and the beauty in the world, which is why I chose the title. Some of the poems are humorous observations about life and some more serious.
I love writing poetry. I like reading all the different forms and I like reading contemporary poems as well as traditional ones. I do think some poets try to be too clever and are trying to prove how academic they are. I believe passionately that poetry should be accessible to everyone and I hate reading a poem and thinking what does it mean. All my poetry is straightforward; some have messages, and some are just for fun. If a reader doesn’t like one of my poems then that’s fair enough, but if they don’t understand it I would be very disappointed with myself.
I’m currently in the middle of writing a second book of poetry, but it takes me ages to edit and choose which poems to use, so it won’t be out until 2015.
Nature’s Gold is £5.00 for a paperback version and 88p for the Kindle version. It’s available from Amazon. URL
