I started to write poems when I was in my early teens. They were my way of understanding myself in the world. I wrote less as I got older, and they have become less the frequent the older and happier I get. They are my diary, snapshots of times in my life when the poem needed to come.

Below are three booklets available for download, each with half a dozen examples hastily arranged into a theme. I have about 150 written in total. One book is a collection of the poems from ‘Tom’s Poetry Pocket’ on The Midnite Hour.
