Hello All,
A belated greeting as I have already posted a few poems to the site over this past week.
I must begin by saying what a friendly bunch you seem to be, I have read about your “get together” last September and it seemed a great time was had by all.
You may have noticed from my ‘Tag’ that I was a member of the ‘Royal Engineers’.
I am now a war pensioner as a result of injuries sustained but I am managing OK
I am a Father of Three and Grandfather of Four, my interests are Art, Reading, Theatre and Writing Poetry, which I used initially as help in recovery. I now write for the sheer enjoyment of sharing thoughts with like minded souls. I look forward to perusing the back catalogue of poems, some of which I have already enjoyed immensely. I wish you all many happy days ahead, God Bless, Richard

We have already 'spoken' but an official welcome from me!
We not only share poetry but hobbies too it seems!
Maybe we will meet at the next get together!?
Look forward to more chat and poems!
Jan

Hello Jan,
Our friend Peter was kind enough to repost my "Dream Walker" poem in its entirety, thank you for your advice with that. Pleased to see we have common interests and I also have an interest in the 'Animal Kingdom', so much to talk about if you are indeed arranging another get together.
God Bless Jan, Richard

Greetings and welcome Richard. I am delighted you have joined our group of wordsmiths and very glad you have already enjoyed the poems and stories which adorn our halls. I am so happy to see you write that writing poetry helped you in recovery; this is exactly the fact I have tried to spread to so many organisations but sadly I don't seem to be finding the right people....

Relax and enjoy the sites and we look forward to more poems from you.

Dream, Hope, Believe, Do

Hello Mac,
Thank you for your welcome to the site. There is no doubt that writing has helped me enormously with recovery. Until I put pen to paper, I was unable to explain even to my Family or Friends, that I was hurting inside. It has once again let some light shine on my life following years of living in some sort of parallel existence. I join you in encouraging the use of this "tool" we all possess.
God Bless Mac, Richard

Thank you for those kind words. The best thing about this site is that we are (to mis-quote Shakespeare) We are a band of brothers on this site and all understand.
