Today a humble hero goes into space To the ISS he will live through three seasons Watching the world spin below As we watch in rapt awe This Starman goes where many have gone before He not the first Briton up there either Yet history is made this day As he sits and waits for […]

*For Hana and Russ.

Happy New Year

Happy new year one and all I wish you happiness in all you do Luck and dreams to inspire and delight No more hardship, no more fights Go out there and fulfil your dreams Better to have tried that sitting by the stream Watching them flow by in a gentle rush Hearing their voices lower […]

Dec 28, 2014

Jun 23, 2014


Anticipation and shredded nerves Blood, sweat and tears and mistakes learned Preparation fine tuned as best as it can be On hallowed ground of SW19 Gladiators on court with weapons at the ready A still moment and emotions steady And then the ball flies like a cannon shot As players defend their baseline spot The […]
