Savvy Poem – SAD

Inspired by Philip Larkin’s poem, ‘Solar’, and composed whilst partaking of an excellent pot of tea, courtesy of Prado Lounge, with the Autumn sun lighting up my morning.


Made sad by the dark and the drear of yesteryear, I feel the

pull of solar flames;

not for the ‘heat’ of the ‘gold’, or

for any kind of fury-fuel, but just

for sustenance – simple, calming, forgiving, and for the coaxing out of

words unwritten.

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.
