Back together again

It’s not easy being me
I took a fall from a window
and went into flight
aided by the northwest wind

I went to pieces, without assistance
My head and legs went different places
I thought – “that’s it!” – and went to bits
as i thought i’d played my aces

But from the kerb and the grass
i saw a hand pass
and head and body did rise
to my upmost surprise

I looked up at the lad
as i went good from bad
and we headed back home
a new place to roam

So i sit on the shelf, thankful for health
with other model toys – oh joy of joys
enjoying my place – in my safety of space
and spending time as i can – a new lego man.

I’m a poet who hails from Salford , England. Home to James Joule , LS Lowry and Humphrey Booth – and plenty of other scientists and artists. These great men have provided me with lots of inspiration in my writing. I also get inspiration from the countries i visit and events i volunteer at…currently part of the volunteer squad of the Imperial War Museum (North) where i help out in the galleries….you can find me at or

Thanks a lot! Part of my little photography-poetry project out on the inkwell. You might see the lego man and his other chums in and around the site – enjoy the hunt 🙂
