From the soles of my walking shoes, I shake you out and s c a t t e r you.
In my sole, a part of you remains.
I find a tool, dig you out, keep you close –
potted and thriving, you grace my front door.
Every day, on my return from work, you greet me.
In the trenches of Flanders, you were grated into m i l l i o n s of pieces,
one of which, must surely have found me
and brought itself back home
Your soul in my sole.

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.
