Thatched at West Stow

Inspired by a visit to West Stow Anglo-Saxon Village.

Dry-grey thatch.
And drafty.
An ageing roof
in need of repair.

Dry-grey fringe.
And stringy.
An ageing thatch
in need of repair.

Freelance writer and descendant of the cave dweller and outlaw, Humphrey Kynaston. Banished from Shropshire for my eccentricity, I have made my home in Suffolk. I write poetry, short stories, travel journals, comedy gig reviews and non-fiction articles. My wish is to write my way back into the heart of my birth land. All writing commissions (and free holidays in Shropshire!) considered.
