Dear Father
Please walk with me
Stand by my side
Heaven’s power to provide

Days are hard
a Battle to be fought
Help me thus,
Not in darkness to be caught

My dearest father
I do thee beseech
Give me the strength
To my heart do reach

For I am weak
and have no will
Frail and in dire need
Full of Human ills

Holiest Father
Who sits upon High
Support me this day
Help me give it my best try

Elvin steel glows in the night
Rustling bushes
fear follows fright

Eye glowing from afar
Looking over your shoulder
running from a war

Dark times ahead for your race
Hoards gather near
at lightening pace

From whence will your saviour come
White majestic steed
to cause them to run

Patience is the key many will say
But time does not wait
for man or that bloody day

Action so swift sometimes required
Failure to do
and in darkness you’ll be mired

He rides! Comes the mighty call
Death to our enemies
may they at our feet fall

Swan and Cygnet

Swan and Cygnet

Went down to the local lakes today so I could see all the babies. There were cygnets and goslings about with very protective parents. The geese hissed a little, but generally they were all well behaved and so I got to get a few descent pictures.

Nothing to say
Emptiness inside
Woke up this morning
on the wrong side

Joyless and in pain
Cloudy and windy
With a chance of rain

Trying to fill this page is hard
No Structure
No Prose
Just a lump of lard

Searching the depths
for an elusive force
Staring up high
To set me on the course

Nearly there a few lines still
Approaching the end
A goal to fulfill

Made it at last
No room to spare
The musing complete
Time to disappear


Fluff and feathers everywhere
Tiny body over there
In a corner cowering low
Little bird, do I want to know?

Trembling, wondering what I may find
Anxious, my hearts in a bind

Peering into the gloom
looking for blood
eyes searching the room
Tears about to flood

None to be found!
A glimmer of hope
He is hopping around
Like trying to catch soap

Perched on a finger
We finally stare
He’s wondering I’m sure
If I am luck or fear

Saved to live another day
To fly in skies sunny or grey

Buy Me

This was taken a while back when I was experimenting with product photography. It was not used in any real media campaign, but I thought it would be cool to try make a mundane object appealing. Adding water droplets always helps!


I took this a few years ago in Bristol, our favourite city in the UK. The people are so friendly and the region around it is beautiful. Maybe one day we will get to live there, but for now I will have to be happy with the few photos and the odd visit.
