The Imaginings of an Adventurous Mind


‘n apple a day keeps the doctor away.

Just a bite of this fruit, led ‘s all astray.

Super fruit, evil fruit; snow white had one.

One in my lunchbox is better than none.

English Summer.

One layer, two, three, even more…

these you will need when you venture out doors.

Be sure to wrap up, July’s here;

chilly clouds are abound, this time of year.

Wait, what’s this? Is that the sun?

You’ll wear thermals and shorts ‘fore the day’s done.

Isolation Island; a Political Haiku

Islands need union,

or isolation rules, so;

to break them is folly!

The Evolution of Fire.

Atop the world doth burn eternal sun,

over the Earth ’till Armageddon come.

The bringer of light and bringer of life,

the cause of much joy, and of as much strife.


From the beginning of humanity,

the flame of the gods held the vital key;

man’s role became inexorably higher,

when his ancestor first discovered fire.


Humanity’s passion like flame hath burned,

for many a year that the earth hath turned;

’til all man’s creations put upon the pyre,

and burn them away in the final fire.

Upcoming Projects

For those of you who are on the edge of your seats in anticipation of my next foray into the world of literature, I have several projects on the go at the moment including another story I’m polishing for this website, several other stories to be sent to magazines, and a couple of novella/novels (these may take some time). I am also contemplating a step into journalism with a couple of side projects. Stay tuned, as hopefully there will be something of interest here within the month.



This month I have achieved a lifelong goal, to become a published author. My short story The Tale of Oscar and Taron can be found at

Swords and Sorcery magazine is a great monthly publication that I would highly recommend for those that enjoy fantasy and similar genres.


i got a website up and running, yay!
