This period of lockdown has given me an opportunity to have a clear out, and going through old cupboards I’ve discovered scraps of paper with old …Forgotten Fragments #1
I posted this a few weeks ago on my poetry blog, stating that I know that there’s parts of it that I’ll change, but it’s of interest to record the first birthing lines.
I’ve since deleted the opening three lines, it now begins:
the hulls and husks
of scuttled ships
shadow the sky
I’ve tweaked a few others lines and added much more.
I’ve also renamed it Rooftop Blues. I’ll let you know how it goes.
Christmas is coming 😃 Here is a link to my Amazon page if you’d like to grab yourself (or somebody else) a copy of one of my two poetry collections, or an anthology that I have some fiction in.
If you visit my page, don’t let that photo of me put you off!

Railway Platform A guitar case on a windswept platform the marbled leather beaded with rain. The echoes of long goodbyes and illicit, erotic trysts may reveal themselves in song. Stirring below the frenzied poplars new saplings unfurl an elastic desire having dreamt in darkness of taut, lofty bowers, crowning coronets for ghosts. ©AndrewJamesMurray
