Where to start ?

Well this is me Peter Fishburne, living in Suffolk UK, and working in a care home for the elderly. It is a tough job at times but I do like it looking after old folk.

I was born in Epsom Surrey UK in December 1955, School till I was 14, and been working ever since. My trade is Upholstery but there is not enough work to make it pay, hence me working as a carer.

I came into poetry late in life, well (very late actually,) about 1997 as it happens, but dabbled at it for a year or two until 2001. By then I was writing anything, up to 3 or 4 poems a day at times.

I treat poetry as a way of expressing myself, and it was very helpful after my divorce in 2003/4. Plus, it is nice to listen to other people and write things around them.

My feelings regarding poetry art that it should be fun, and if it isn't fun then something is wrong. I also don’t believe you can dry up...slow down sometimes, but never dry up. All you have to do is have an open mind and look around you, because the world is full of inspiration, all you have to do is look.

Well that’s me I guess. Take me as you see me, no frills , no fancy paint job. What you see is what you get, like it or lump it.

O and as an after thought, I forgot to tell you I am Dyslexic so please forgive the odd mistake, I don't always see them

I hope you like my work. It covers a wide range of subjects and emotions, so have a read and I hope you enjoy and even relate to some of it.

Mr Fishburne, the Poet of the Moment!

Hello Peter . . . it's good to have you as an author here at BpoetryWriters. Though we've know eachother through writing for a few years, it always amazes me your ability to write in the moment, to see your life (as well as those around you) in a poetic manner. You're always up for the challenge of it all, and I commend you for your honesty and good common sense in your dealings with words.

Welcome aboard, Peter.

It's a pleasure to be here and thank you for letting me join in.
Ha I can't help myself lol.....I see it, I write about it. Thats the way it is.
Don't all poets do that ? ;0)

I guess me and poetry are a lot like someone that was born blind or deaf
That is how I see and hear the world around me.
Call me a Talking Telescope if you will, If life is foggy I can help people see.

Bottom line, if I can make someone smile, even if is at my expence, I'm Happy
