  1. Dear Peter,

    Congratulations on having your three poems published by Sparks of Callope.

    Reading your profile I was struck by the similarity in our poetry journey, especially the timeframe.

    Like you I started writing poems in the seventies and continued into the eighties. There followed a hiatus until 2013 when I met a fellow poet at my local football club. By 2019 I was once again writing poetry again.

    I wish you continued success with your poetry career.

    Kind regards

    1. Thanks — and yes, that is quite a spooky parallel. My 2013 push back into poetry was courtesy of a colleague, Lucy Newlyn, to whom I’m lastinglt grateful.

      Good luck with your own writing!
